BMW Service & Maintenance Tips as We Get Ready for Summer

In our previous blog post, we talked about the importance of springtime maintenance, but today we're going to detail three specific services we recommend you look into for your own BMW car, crossover, or SUV.

Of course, there may be other services your BMW X5 or BMW 3 Series model need this spring, but the following trio give you a good place to start. For more detailed information about what your BMW needs to head into summer safe and healthy, give us a call!

Three Maintenance Items to Take Care of Going into Summer in Jacksonville, FL

  1. Check Your Tire Pressure/Treads: While we don't exactly get freezing rain and snow days down here in Jacksonville, the winter temps can still mess with your tire pressure, and under-inflated tires can cause poor performance, can reduce your efficiency, and can actually impact your BMW's traction. If your tires are low, we'll fill 'em up for you, and if they need to be balanced or rotated, we can take care of that too, leaving you with the buttery smooth ride your suspension was built for.
  2. Check Your Engine Hoses/Tubes/Belts: While winter doesn't have much on us here in the Gainesville, FL area, the summer certainly does! If you want the best out of your BMW this summer, keeping your engine cool is of paramount importance. While your BMW has a state-of-the-art cooling system, a cracked tube or disconnected hose or even low coolant levels can cause your engine to overheat, which can spell not just mechanical problems but also a hefty repair bill. To avoid that kind of summer drama, checking your hoses, belts, coolant, and tubes beforehand is a smart move!
  3. Don't Forget About Your A/C System: When everything is working right, it's easy to forget about your cooling system, but if you're driving around Saint Augustine, FL and the A/C breaks, you're going to notice! Before the temps peak, make sure you have enough refrigerant and no leaks in the system by having someone on our team perform a routine check and top-off any low levels. That way you won't have to sweat it later this summer—literally!
