2013 BMW 528i xDrive Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2013 BMW 528i xDrive

Your 528i xDrive drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your BMW, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your 528i xDrive and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2013 BMW 528i xDrive, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow BMW's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are BMW 528i xDrive Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2013 BMW 528i xDrive drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your BMW 528i xDrive may need driveshaft attention if you feel resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your BMW 528i xDrive drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2013 BMW 528i xDrive drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category.
