Bring your 1990 BMW 525i to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 525i’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1990 BMW 525i. In general, car batteries only last three to five years.

Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to.

Your BMW 525i could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
