Here’s Why 2008 BMW 528xi Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your BMW 528xi to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 528xi has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 528xi, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2008 BMW 528xi maintenance schedule!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 528xi running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2008 BMW 528xi problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your BMW 528xi Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2008 BMW 528xi for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 528xi. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2008 BMW 528xi. 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your BMW 528xi battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 528xi) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your BMW 528xi won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2008 BMW 528xi's engine run smoother. See BMW's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2008 528xi in the chart at the top of this page. 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 2008 BMW 528xi.

Periodic service to the steering system in your BMW 528xi can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform BMW 528xi suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your BMW 528xi's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine BMW 528xi maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your BMW 528xi engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.
