2009 BMW 528i Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your BMW? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my BMW tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your 528i towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 528i is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my 528i transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your BMW 528i’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your BMW. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
