2008 BMW 328 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 1500 miles
I bought a new 2008 BMW 328i 2 months ago and have put 1500 miles on it. Last week it would not start - dead battery. I took it to the BMW Service Shop and they told me the cause of a dead battery in my new car was that I had a 'bad driver profile' - I only drive short distances, thus not giving the battery time to fully recharge.
Can this be true? Is this a characteristic of BMWs? If so, what do I need to do to ensure that my battery stays charged?
