Top 10 BMW repair issues

All BMWs have their own personalities and quirks, strengths and weaknesses. We thought it would be useful to note some of the most common repair issues that we see in BMW Models:

  1. Engine overheating – Leaks in the engine cooling system from the expansion tank, radiator and water pump are not uncommon, all of which can lead to overheating.
  2. Burning Smell or oil drips due to leaking engine oil – valve cover gasket leaks are not uncommon, especially after 60,000 miles.
  3. A clunk or jolt is felt in the steering when braking – failure of the front control arm bracket bushings, also known as thrust rod bushings, is a common issue among BMWs.
  4. Loss of power steering fluid – leaks developing in one or more power steering hoses which, if not repaired, can result in steering issues.
  5. Cracked alloy wheels – this generally happens with 19-inch run flats and can, over time, cause a tire puncture.
  6. Check rear lamp/brake lamp – if the BMW has a faulty tail lamp, it can lead to a ‘check rear lamp/brake lamp’ message on your dashboard.
  7. Pulsations during hard breaking – front brake rotors can wear down resulting in a pulsation felt in the brake pedal.
  8. The heater fan speed varies and the fan will not turn off – even with the settings turned on, the ‘blower final stage resistor’ may fail.
  9. Front outer CV Boots may tear – after 60,000 miles, the front outer half-shaft boots tend to tear and may cause grease to leak.
  10. Electric windows won’t shut – at this point, it may be time to replace the power window switch.

BMW facts

BMW is in a class of its own. Every vehicle in its impressive line-up series makes a great first impression and they are all “designed to be as functional as they are beautiful, “like with the “trademark kidney grill” that was developed to reduce drag.

BMW is also known for offering the best and most advanced safety features and all their vehicles are equipped so that you and your family will be safe while driving anywhere. From state-of-the-art airbags to seatbelt pre-tensioners, to active headrests, you and your passengers have the best protection while on the road.

The company even has a “100 Year Plan” to launch futuristic vehicles that will transform the automotive industry in a big way. Yes, “the future is ours!”

BMW REPAIRS & COSTS: Repairs can be costly, especially if the recommended maintenance has been neglected. We help you to save by maintaining your BMW maintenance schedules and prioritizing repairs that need immediate attention versus ones that can wait. By sourcing the best parts for the money and by providing the best technicians to work on your car, we save you money! That’s what makes our pricing VERY competitive.

BMW PARTS: We generally use original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts ONLY if they are cost-efficient. Otherwise, we’ll source an equally durable aftermarket part.
