Audi Care Recommendations
As with most makes, the best way to preserve your Audi is through preventive maintenance and minor repairs that head off major ones. Audi, whose parent company is Volkswagen, sets a recommended service schedule that alternates every 5,000 miles (or annually, whichever comes first). Once your auto reaches the 5,000-mile mark, the manufacturer prescribes minor maintenance. This includes a multi-point inspection, brake check focusing on pads, and oil/filter change. This level of service should be repeated regularly. Once you reach 20,000 miles, Audi calls for standard level maintenance, which should be repeated at 40,000 and 60,000 miles and so on. Standard maintenance repeats the minor services and also includes a thorough list of inspections and services to be completed. Furthermore, a technician will check the transmission, steering, lighting, battery, spare tire, first aid kit, and body (for signs of leaking or rusting).
In addition to the manufacturer's advice, some owners find it useful to glean information from other Audi enthusiasts because they directly experience keeping models within the brand on the road. For example, many advise changing the transmission fluid and filter if your car doesn't shift gears as it should. This practice will sometimes remedy the problem without a major repair. Even if you don't experience a shifting issue, the fluid and filter should be changed in the 30,000 to the 60,000-mile range. Also, other owners suggest preemptive changing of the snub mount, seals, o-rings, and thread locking compounds when you're changing the timing belt. This makes sense due to ease of access. If you drive in a scorching hot area, you should change and flush the power steering fluid every 30,000 miles to keep hydraulic problems from developing.
Reliable Local Repair for Your Audi
While the Audi dealership is fabulous if you're in the market for a new car, you don't have to drive there every time you need mechanical assistance. Instead, bring your car to the Auto Stop Elite, where our ASE Master certified technicians love your Audi as much as you do. We offer a generous 36 months/36,000-mile limited warranty on most repairs. We even offer a rewards program and a roadside assistance package that's good for a year after you spend more than $25 with us. Give us a call at 571-282-3380 to get superior Audi repairs.
