What are the Most Common BMW Repairs?

If you own a BMW, there is no doubt that you appreciate a vehicle that is not only functional, but also stylish and high-performing. Here at Bay Diagnostic, we are passionate about BMW vehicles and understand the love that BMW owners have for their cars. While BMW models are built for excellence, like any other working vehicle, they will need a repair or two once in a while. The best way to avoid needing repairs is by abiding by your vehicle's factory recommended services and inspections here at Bay Diagnostic. However, lets look at some of the most common BMW repairs and when you need to call a mechanic.  Cooling system repairs - BMW models are known for needing cooling system repairs which cause engine overheating.

Is Your Car Ride Bouncy or Rough?

You're driving your BMW and you travel over a speed bump. If you notice that your car bounces excessively afterwards or it seems that you feel every bump in the road, there may be a problem with your vehicle's shocks and struts. It can also point to a suspension system issue, especially if you have a performance suspension installed.  When it comes to a leaky shock absorber or a broken spring, the repair is typically easy to do and inexpensive. We can diagnose this issue quickly and get your ride smooth again. The best way to analyze the issue is to perform a test drive which will allow our mechanics to better understand the ride control issues that you are experiencing.  While you may describe your drive as bouncy or uncomfortable, the culprit doesn't have to be the shock absorbers or struts. The real problem may be an out-of-balance wheel, bent rim or too much run out in a tire. Also, it is important to remember that your vehicle's suspension and stee ... read more

How to Drive Safety on NYE

It’s time to ring in the New Year, celebrating that another year has passed and hoping that the New Year will bring us all good health and fortune. Many people will be out celebrating the holiday with their loved ones, which is why it is so important to remember to stay safe tonight wherever you plan to be.  If you are planning on driving to a destination tonight to celebrate, be sure to remember the following safety tips which will protect your safety and the safety of others on the road:  NEVER drink and drive. If you are planning on partaking, we suggest not driving at all and getting a ride share or taxi sorted to get you where you need to be. If you do drive to a friends house and partake in drinking, ask to spend the night until morning when you will be safe to drive home.
