Common BMW Repairs
Although BMW is known for superior engineering, like any vehicle, it will eventually need repairs. It’s just part of normal wear and tear and likely means you’re driving and enjoying your vehicle! But did you know that you can prevent the likelihood of major repairs or an untimely end to the life of your car by performing routine maintenance? Whitlock Automotive can assist you with that preventive care or needed repairs when the time comes. We understand and can navigate the most commonly reported BMW issues just as well as a dealership because our technicians are trained experts.
One of the most frequent complaints from BMW owners is an electronic system malfunction. This includes problems with the window regulators, door locks, windshield wipers, and sometimes even the air conditioner. While BMW’s are known for quick pick-up and speed, it’s important to think about stopping, too. A vibrating steering wheel when applying the brakes isn’t entirely uncommon, but it does mean you should get a professional to take a look. The problem seems to be particularly prevalent in the 3-series. Sputtering during acceleration likely means that a high-pressure pump that sends a stream of fuel into the engine is not performing as it should. Leaks also account for a number of BMW repairs, as with most vehicles. These include oil leaks, power steering fluid drip, coolant loss, and alternator seal failure.
