A luxury car like a BMW shouldn’t be dealt with like any other car. There are specialized functions and a deep knowledge and intricacy that needs to be understood by those who work under the hood.
And while you think might think that requires the work of a BMW dealership, here at Milito’s Auto Repair in Chicago we can guarantee to increase the lifespan of your car after it has been through the capable hands of our experts.
Why Own a BMW?
When you ask a BMW owner why they drive the car that they drive, you’ll most often hear something along the lines of, “Drive one. You’ll figure it out in a hurry why they’re so popular. Nothing else drives like a BMW.”
Clearly they’re not alone, as sales of BMW brand models rose 4.2% in 2017 to 2.09 million passenger cars and SUVs, with almost 1,400 cars sold in Chicago in 2017 alone — the X5 being the number one seller in the Chicagoland area. Whether purchased new or used, you’re guaranteed a luxury ride in and out of the city.
Common Problems With BMWs
Despite it’s stellar reputation, BMWs are not immune to problems. Some of the most common issues are:
Oil Leaks — You can determine that your BMW has an oil leak if you notice a small puddle of oil under your car, or you smell burning oil when you drive. This can be caused by several things, including a leaky valve cover gasket or a failing fuel pump.
Engine Cooling System — Overheating was another concern with BMWs. While there are a number of factors in your vehicle that can contribute to this issue, including a coolant leak or a faulty water pump, a certified technician at Milito’s Auto Repair will be able to help you pinpoint the problem.
Steering Wheel Vibrations Under Braking — If you notice your steering wheel shake or vibrate while braking, it could be that something’s wrong with one of your thrust arm bushings. These rubber units are a critical component of your suspension system. However, they’ve been known to fail around 75,000 miles.
Electronic Issues — Many BMW vehicles experience electronic problems over time, the most common including windshield wipers, window regulators, and electronic door locks, depending on the model of BMW series.
All of these problems and more can be fixed by the BMW service mechanics at Milito’s Auto Repair in Chicago.
