Here’s Why 2006 BMW 525xi Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your BMW 525xi to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 525xi could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 525xi maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2006 BMW 525xi!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by BMW, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 525xi's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2006 BMW 525xi problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your BMW 525xi

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2006 BMW 525xi 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 525xi'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 2006 BMW 525xi? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your BMW 525xi battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your BMW 525xi 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 prevent premature wear on your 2006 BMW 525xi engine. See BMW's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2006 525xi in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2006 BMW 525xi.

Periodic service to the steering system in your BMW 525xi can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones.

To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your BMW 525xi's steering and suspension system.
