10 MOST COMMON BMW RELIABILITY ISSUES

10 MOST COMMON BMW RELIABILITY ISSUES

Are you looking to maintain your BMW to keep it in tip-top shape? Maybe you’re noticing that your vehicle is acting up or just isn’t performing at its best. To help you keep an eye on your car, here’s a quick list of the 10 most common BMW reliability issues so that you’ll recognize them if they occur! 1. The Coolant System BMWs are sometimes known to have issues with the entire coolant system. The coolant system keeps the engine from overheating as well as allows the air conditioning in the car to function. A broken coolant system will lead to the engine overheating, which will spell disaster for the car, especially in the summer. 2. The Windows Won’t Shut If you have windows that won’t shut or move slowly, you may have to replace faulty window regulator clips to solve these reliability issues. 3. Electronics Issues Many cars suffer from electronics issues over time and BMWs are no exception. Electrical issues can affect your interior ... read more

PREPARE YOUR CAR FOR SUMMER

PREPARE YOUR CAR FOR SUMMER

No matter what type of car you drive — a BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Porsche or other brand — there is one thing they all have in common: they all need a little TLC to prepare them for the coming summer months. Here in Florida, especially, the heat can be brutal, getting above 100 degrees Fahrenheit on a near daily basis. To ensure both you and your vehicle make it through the season feeling cool and collected, here are a few tips you’ll want to keep in mind. 1. Inspect your air conditioner. Even if it seems to be working just fine, it is worth bringing it to your favorite local automotive repair shop — like Auto Works of Brandon — to give it the once-over. You’ll want to have all the systems checked to make sure they are in good condition, change any filters that are looking a bit dingy, and ensure all of the fluids are topped off and ready to go. You don’t want to discover a problem with your air conditioner when it’s 110 degrees and you need to drive. 2. Check your ... read more

WHAT IS THE CAR CARE CLUB?

WHAT IS THE CAR CARE CLUB?

Maybe you’ve seen the signage in our shop, or come across the page on our website. Maybe you’ve even chatted with us about the Car Care Club, but you still aren’t sure exactly what it is. We wanted to take a moment to explain the Auto Works of Brandon Car Care Club, so you have all the information you need to make the best possible decisions for your family. Owning a car can at times be an expensive proposition. Things break unexpectedly, or don’t work the way they should, or the car starts making an odd noise. The factory warranty will cover some of the most catastrophic problems, but it doesn’t cover everything bumper-to-bumper, and things like regular maintenance aren’t covered at all, which means you have to pay out of pocket for every oil change, tire replacement or air conditioning service required. We know those costs can add up, even if you maintain your vehicle in perfect condition. So we decided to put together the Car Care Club in an effort to reward our ... read more

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE AIRBAG RECALL

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE AIRBAG RECALL

No one likes to think about it, much less talk about it, but the fact remains that if you own a BMW, Mercedes, or nearly any vehicle built between 2002-2015, this applies to you. In all, 19 different automakers have had to recall their vehicles using the Takata company’s front airbags for both the passenger and driver sides. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has called this “the largest and most complex safety recall in U.S. history.” At the heart of the problem is that the airbag’s inflation mechanism, which is a metal cartridge loaded with propellant wafers, in some cases has ignited with explosive force, causing injury and even killing car occupants in some cases. So what should you do? First and foremost, don’t panic. While this is absolutely something that nee ... read more

What are These Products, Anyway?

What are These Products, Anyway?

It doesn’t matter what manufacturer you purchase your car from, or if you buy it new or used — when you get to the point of signing the paperwork, you will be brought back into the Finance and Insurance (F and I) office, and offered a range of protection products you can add on to your loan. But what are they, and should you purchase them? There are a wide range of products to choose from, but in particular we’re going to talk about two of the most popular today: service contracts and extended warranties. Service Contracts On the surface, a service contract might seem like a great idea — you pay one up-front fee, and all your maintenance is taken care of for the set period the contract is in effect. But there are a few caveats you should be aware of. 1. You can only use that dealership. You can’t go to the oil change place down the street, or use a trusted me ... read more
