2012 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my BMW tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 528i’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my 528i transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your BMW 528i transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your BMW, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
