10,000 Miles or 12 Months
Every 10,000 miles or 12 months, you should schedule your first check-up for a few routine maintenance services. For the most part, they’re basic safety checks and oil services to help ensure that you’re secure behind the wheel. They include:
- Brake Inspection
- Fluid Inspection
- Oil and Filter Change
- Tire Pressure Check
You should also have your suspension, steering linkage and all rubber belts and hoses checked at this time. By having all these services performed, you can avoid more severe auto troubles down the road.
30,000 Miles (Inspection 1)
The first of two in-depth examinations, Inspection 1 should take place every 30,000 miles. At this juncture in time, you’ll want to perform all the routine services mentioned earlier, along with the following:
- Exhaust System Check (leaks and correct positioning/mounting)
- Power Steering, Rear Axle and Transmission Inspection
- Thorough Brake Inspection (brake pad contact points, brake pad thickness, rotor surfaces)
- Visual Check of Fuel Connections, Lines and Tanks
Make sure all these service items are performed, and you’ll have a leg up in ensuring the safety and full functionality of your BMW X5. If you’re having trouble remembering every check and inspection, you can just tell your BMW-certified technician that you’re due for an Inspection 1, and they’ll know exactly what to check.
60,000 Miles (Inspection 2)
At 60,000 miles, there are a few additional service items to perform. These will really help prepare your X5 to last for the long haul:
- Change Fuel Filter
- Change Spark Plugs
- Evacuate/Recharge Air Conditioning System
- Replace Thermostat
There are fewer maintenance items to perform here, but they’re no less important to the performance of your vehicle. For example, changing spark plugs can prevent engine misfiring and combustion problems, as well as poor acceleration. Bad spark plugs can drain the battery and reduce fuel efficiency all in one.
