What are Common Maintenance Items for Audi Vehicles?

Owning an Audi means you enjoy luxury when it comes to your vehicle. Audi vehicles are awesome cars that are known for their excellent driving capabilities and stunning performance. In order to maintain your Audi and keep it always running at its best, it's important to stay on top of your vehicle's recommended services throughout the years. You'll also protect any warranties you may have and ensure a high resale value if you ever decide to part ways with your vehicle. So, what are the common maintenance items your Audi will need? Let's take a look. 

Of course, the most important maintenance item your Audi will need is its regular oil change. For most Audi models, this will be needed between every 5,000 to 10,000 miles, depending on the make, model, and year. You can refer to your owner's manual for more information on how often your oil change should be performed. We help you keep track here at Eurotech Auto Service and remind you of when your oil change is due so that you never miss a milestone. 

In terms of other maintenance, Audi recommends a minor service at least once a year and a major service every 2 years, in addition to other maintenance that is needed according to mileage. Minor maintenance, which is recommended every year or every 10,000 miles, typically includes the following: 

  • A brake system inspection to check thickness of brake pads
  • Engine oil and filter replacement
  • Multi-point inspection
  • Reset service reminder indicator
  • Check tire repair kit
