When you purchase the BMW X3, you're looking for a vehicle prepared to handle rugged adventures while swaddling you in luxurious comfort. But if you want to keep those adventures going for as long as possible, you'll want to bring your Sports Activity Vehicle in for regularly scheduled maintenance.

Bobby Rahal BMW of South Hills, assisting all outdoors people in the Canonsburg, Pittsburgh, and Uniontown, areas of Pennsylvania and the Morgantown and Wheeling areas of West Virginia, is here with a quick BMW X3 maintenance schedule.

1,200-Mile Running-In Service (Break in Service)

After 1,200 miles, your control display will let you know you're due for your Break in Service. This is a service for all models in the X-series and will include:

  • Changing engine oil and filter
  • Changing rear axle differential oil

10,000 Miles

After your first 10,000 miles on the road, and every 10,000 miles from then on, you're going to want to change your engine oil. This ensures your engine is performing at its peak and is clean of efficiency-reducing sludge.

20,000 Miles

During your second oil change, at 20,000 miles, you'll need to replace your ventilation microfilter. This helps keep the air circulating in your BMW X3 clear and free of particulates. This is also the marker where you should get your brakes inspected, which will include checking the brake lines, rotors, calipers, and pads.

30,000 Miles

At the 30,000-mile mark, you'll need to replace the air filter element-but you may need to do this more often if you're driving on dusty, dirt roads. You should also change your spark plugs, the elements that ignite the fuel in your engine. When you do not replace your spark plugs regularly, they can become less effective and ultimately lessen fuel efficiency.

40,000 Miles

When you reach 40,000 miles, you'll likely need to replace your brake pads for the first time. Your brake gradual and safe stop. If not replaced regularly, brake pads can wear all the way through, which could result in damage to the rotor itself.

50,000 Miles

At the 50,000-mile mark, it will be time to change the fluid in the rear axle differential and the fluid in the transfer case. This is also about the time most manufacturers will suggest you should start looking into replacing your tires.

Tires can last from 50,000 to 70,000 miles, but this isn't an exact science since it largely depends on your driving habits. You should get your tires balanced and rotated regularly to increase the life of your tires and consistently check your tires for tread depth, tire pressure, and possible damage.
