Is a BMW a Good Car?

BMW models are not just good; they’re extraordinary! One time behind the wheel around Corona and you’ll know why.

How to Make Your BMW Last Longer

Riverside drivers have high standards and want their cars to last a long time. These tips will help your BMW last longer:

  • Get the features you want: Purchase a BMW model that has the features you want now, so you will still love it just as much in 10 years or more.
  • Get the latest safety technology: Safety features like rearview cameras, pedestrian detection, blind-spot warning, electronic stability control, etc. may help you avoid accidents and therefore keep your vehicle in good shape for many years.
  • Get Routine maintenance: Be sure to stick to the recommended maintenance schedule in your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
  • Regular cleaning: By regularly washing and waxing your BMW you can help prevent chipping, rust, and salt damage. Regularly cleaning the inside may reduce excessive wear and tear to the upholstery and carpets.
  • Use Only Genuine BMW Parts: Always use genuine OEM parts for replacements and repairs to improve the longevity of your BMW.
  • Inspections between service intervals: Inspect your vehicle and its tires monthly for warning signs to avoid more significant damage later on Ontario roads.
