Maintenance Tips for Your Audi

If you’ve invested in a luxury car like an Audi, you should invest in routine maintenance to keep your vehicle running well and looking great. Regular service and care will improve your car’s performance and ensure the value stays high. Some of the best basic maintenance tips that will help keep your Audi in great shape are:

Take It To An Audi Specialist

An Audi is a high-end, performance-driven car. It should be repaired only by certified Audi-trained mechanics who are used to working with Audi systems. A certified Audi mechanic will have the tools and parts necessary to keep your Audi running the way it did when it was new. 

Don’t Ignore Dashboard Lights

When you see a dashboard light come on, don’t ignore it. That light means that something on the car needs to be serviced. If you ignore warning lights on the dashboard, you could end up with engine failure or other expensive repairs. An Audi-certified tech can diagnose the problem and fix it for you.

Get The Oil Changed Regularly

Oil is your Audi’s blood. It ensures that all of the car’s systems are lubricated and working smoothly. Check the oil level often, and if the change oil light on the dashboard lights up, call ASI Collision right away. Regular oil changes can help prevent engine damage and excessive wear and tear on the car. You should get an oil change every 5,000-7,500 miles. 

Oil is essential for keeping your engine lubricated and running smoothly. It’s important to regularly check the oil level and quality and replace the oil filter as needed. Depending on the vehicle’s make and model, Audi recommends oil changes every 10,000 miles. As the vehicle’s mileage increases yearly, drivers should consider getting oil changes every 5,000 or 7,500 miles.

Check The Brakes

Being able to stop safely is critically important, especially if you have a long commute or drive every day. But brakes need regular maintenance, and parts must be replaced regularly to ensure their safety. The brake fluid in your Audi should be flushed every 30,000 miles to keep your brakes in top shape. 

 Check The Tires Often

If your tires are worn out, you won’t have the traction and stability you need to drive safely. They may also start to wear unevenly, which can damage the tire and make it a safety hazard. Audi luxury vehicles come with high-performance tires. To make sure your tires are in good shape and inflated properly, make an appointment for maintenance today. 

Check All The Fluids

Weather, usage, and other factors can cause some of your Audi’s fluids to start running low. During a routine maintenance appointment, a technician will check the coolant, steering fluid, brake fluid, transmission fluid, and other fluids in your car to ensure they are at normal levels. 

Check Spark Plugs

Spark plugs ignite the fuel in the engine. If a spark plug is misfiring, your car may not run at all, or it may start and then stall. Spark plug replacement should always be done by an Audi-certified mechanic. 

Check The Battery

Batteries don’t last forever, even in luxury vehicles. Replacing a battery is a relatively easy procedure, but if you wait until the battery dies, you could get left out in the cold. Instead, schedule a routine maintenance appointment today, and a technician can check the battery and replace it if necessary so that you and your family don’t get stranded.
