Bringing your Audi into a certified service center for regular maintenance is incredibly important. This practice extends the life of your vehicle, keeping the car you love on the road longer. It also saves you a lot of money, as regular maintenance prevents many common car problems from happening. It also gives you and your maintenance technician a chance to identify any potential issues before they worsen. Above all else, regular servicing and maintenance keep you, your family, and everyone on the road safer.

Service Maintenance Checklist

To help you stay on track with your Audi’s maintenance needs, take a look at the servicing schedule below:

Every 5,000 miles

  • Change the oil to keep your engine running smoothly
  • Have your tires rotated? Ideally, you should do this at the same time as your oil change, so you do not neglect this important task
  • Balance your tires to avoid uneven weight distribution
  • Check fluids and brake system

Every 15,000 miles

  • Replace your air filter to keep the air in your car breathable and to maintain a stable temperature when on the road
  • Check levels of coolant
  • Inspect the battery terminals for corrosion and to ensure it is still properly mounted
  • Examine the electrical wiring in the car and inspect all lighting, including interior lights, headlights, high beams, and four-way lights

Every 30,000 miles

  • Replace your spark plugs to prevent frustrating and potentially dangerous events such as a car that fails to start or Headlights that do not turn on
  • Replace your fuel filter to keep your injectors free from clogs and to improve your fuel efficiency
  • Check your transmission and final drive

Every 35,000 miles

  • Have your belts inspected to ensure they are still functioning well
  • Check your horn function and the responsiveness of any steering wheel controls
  • Inspect the exhaust system
  • Inspect the entire underbody for signs of leaks
  • Replace power steering fluid

Additional maintenance

  • Replace your Audi’s timing belt after 60,000 miles and inspect the entire tensioning system
