Don’t learn this lesson the hard way
For many vehicle owners, transmission problems rear their ugly heads when they are least prepared for them, emotionally or financially. German transmissions tend to be more persnickety than their American or Japanese counterparts, which make transmission repairs even more painful for owners of these specialized vehicles. Regular transmission service only takes a few minutes, every few months, and offers the following key benefits:
- Keeps your transmission properly lubricated
- Keeps your components from getting clogged up
- Extends the useful life of your vehicle
Even if your vehicle feels like it’s running fine, trouble could be brewing within your transmission. Stay on the safe side. Call or visit BTM Motorwerks near San Jose, CA.
Find your frequency
Many of our customers ask how often their German or European automobile’s transmission should be serviced. The answer is, it’s not a “one-size-fits-all” affair. With many German transmissions, getting serviced every 100,000 miles is usually sufficient. However, if your vehicle is older, you have a manual transmission, or do a lot of “stop-and-go” driving, we might recommend you come in more frequently to keep your vehicle operating as smoothly as possible. BTM Motorwerks recommends visiting our shop in Campbell, CA, and together, we’ll devise a transmission service schedule that suits your vehicle, personal schedule, and budget the best! We want your service to be as smooth and convenient as possible.
