Does Your 2018 BMW 440i xDrive Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2018 BMW 440i xDrive, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 440i xDrive bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2018 BMW 440i xDrive in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your BMW 440i xDrive suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your BMW 440i xDrive

Your 2018 BMW 440i xDrive’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2018 BMW 440i xDrive’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your BMW 440i xDrive shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 BMW 440i xDrive’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

2018 440i xDrive Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my BMW's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my BMW 440i xDrive? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way BMW intended.
  • When does BMW 440i xDrive power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 440i xDrive’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per BMW's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
