2005 BMW 525i Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my BMW's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a BMW 525i? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your 525i towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 525i is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my 525i transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your BMW 525i transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your BMW's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
