BMW Scheduled Maintenance
Regardless of year and model, your BMW’s scheduled maintenance is essential to the life of your vehicle. Proper upkeep is also key to ensuring your continued enjoyment of the BMW high-performance driving experience.
The manufacturer provides a detailed maintenance agenda for each model, based on the vehicle’s specific requirements. Your car’s computerized indicator system is designed to alert you when it’s time to visit your BMW mechanic, but knowing what to expect can help ensure that you don’t miss any of these critical service intervals.
Why Scheduled Maintenance Is Critical for Your BMW
Keeping your vehicle well-maintained ensures your safety — as well as the safety of your passengers and other motorists — on the road. It also helps limit breakdowns.
Following the BMW scheduled maintenance recommendations reduces the need for unexpected repairs, saving you both money and hassle. It also protects the value of your vehicle, as you can prove to any potential buyer that the car was has been well-cared-for throughout its lifetime. A well-maintained car is also better for the environment and will allow you to sail through Utah’s annual vehicle emissions testing process.
You probably purchased your fine European automobile — at least in part — for the joy and excitement of driving it. Keeping your car in tip-top shape means never having to compromise the thrill that comes from taking to the open road.
What’s Included in BMW Scheduled Maintenance?
BMW establishes scheduled maintenance milestones based on time intervals and your car’s mileage. However, the vehicle’s condition also influences how often some services should be performed.
Your model and year will dictate the specific maintenance tasks that must be performed. Generally, however, you can expect your schedule to follow these milestones.
Your car will require, at minimum, a safety inspection, brake service and cabin air filter change at least once every year or 15,000 miles. Transmission, power steering and coolant services are part of the scheduled maintenance every two years. Belts, hoses, spark plugs and the water pump are typically replaced at the four-year mark.
Who Should Perform Your BMW Scheduled Maintenance?
You may believe that only a BMW dealership can provide these services, but that’s not the case. But you should think twice before trusting your car to a non-specialist, so the best answer is probably your local, independent BMW auto shop.
A factory-trained European auto mechanic specializing in BMW service can provide the same exceptional quality parts and service that you’ll find at the dealer. But you will enjoy a personalized level of customer service that you won’t find at the dealership.
