Overview of Essential BMW 528e Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1985 BMW 528e for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 528e’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1985 BMW 528e? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 528e may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your BMW 528e battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 528e stranded. Your BMW 528e won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
