The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 528i's engine to its 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 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2016 BMW 528i, 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.
Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2016 BMW 528i drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your BMW could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your BMW 528i.
You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2016 BMW 528i? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
