Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2002 BMW 525i? In general, car batteries only last three to five years.

Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your BMW 525i battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then!

Your BMW 525i won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2002 BMW 525i.
