2020 BMW 530e xDrive Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2020 BMW 530e xDrive Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2020 BMW 530e xDrive, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 530e xDrive feels bouncy, pulls 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 2020 BMW 530e xDrive in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your BMW 530e xDrive suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

BMW 530e xDrive Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2020 BMW 530e xDrive suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2020 BMW 530e xDrive shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn BMW 530e xDrive shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 530e xDrive’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2020 530e xDrive Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my BMW's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 should my BMW 530e xDrive get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 should I have my BMW 530e xDrive power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 530e xDrive is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per BMW's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
