Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1989 BMW 525i!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, BMW themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 525i running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1989 BMW 525i problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your BMW 525i Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 BMW 525i and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 525i's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1989 BMW 525i? In general, car batteries only last three to five years.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 525i) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your BMW 525i won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
