Overview of Essential BMW 325i Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2003 BMW 325i for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 325i. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2003 BMW 325i. In general, car batteries only last three to five years.

Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your BMW 325i battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 325i stranded. Your BMW 325i won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2003 BMW 325i's engine run smoother.
