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.

And as anyone who has fiddled with a computer can tell you — even when you do everything right, sometimes things still go wrong. Most of the time, these types of problems are relatively easy to service and repair. Many times, an upgrade to the onboard systems will resolve issues, or swapping out a single part will fix the problem. Window Problems. While it doesn’t hold true for every ... read more

ONLY FIX WHAT’S BROKEN: BMW’S CBS EXPLAINED

ONLY FIX WHAT’S BROKEN: BMW’S CBS EXPLAINED

Everyone has heard the “conventional wisdom” that cars should be serviced at specific mileage or time intervals, regardless of what type of vehicle it is or how it is driven. Starting back in 2002, however, BMW started to challenge that approach with a system called Condition Based Service (CBS) that started out on just a few models, and has since rolled out to the rest of the fleet. If you buy a BMW today, it will have the CBS system installed. But what is CBS, and how does it work? And what does that mean for you? Since Autoworks of Brandon is a
