How often does my BMW need to be serviced?

Your BMW owner's manual will have all the information you need regarding services and maintenance schedules. You can also find that information using our convenient online maintenance schedule look-up tool. Some special circumstances (e.g. a lot of hard driving or frequently towing with your BMW X5) can call for a modified schedule, and we would be happy to help you determine the best service schedule for your BMW.

What does BMW routine service include?

This is another answer that can be found in the pages of your owner's manual. Each mileage interval will include certain tasks and inspections. Oil changes, tire rotations, and brake inspections should happen every time. Please call us with any questions or concerns about your specific BMW model and mileage.

Why is routine maintenance important on my BMW?

A neglected car will eventually succumb to the wear and tear of regular driving, likely by seizing up or failing to start. Ignoring car maintenance can lead to much higher costs later on.

Adhering to an accurate routine maintenance schedule is the only way to keep your BMW in excellent condition. If you want to keep driving a like-new car for years and years to come, just stick to BMW's recommended service intervals to keep all the bits and pieces in perfect working order.

Even if you want to sell your BMW after a couple years, you'll have an easier time getting a good price if you can show that the car has been properly maintained.

What is BMW Value Service?
