Tips to Prepare Your Audi for the Fall/Winter

Audi in the Winter

With autumn fast approaching, the foliage isn’t the only thing that will change with the seasons. So too will your vehicle if you fail to maintain it during the fall and winter. Here are some pointers on how to keep your Audi operating like the well-oiled machine that it is.

Check Your Oil

Oil changes are simple and quick, making it unacceptable to forego this auto service. During the autumn months, your car’s engine may need to work harder to accommodate the weather change. If your oil is riddled with pollutants, it won’t provide the engine with the fuel it needs to run effectively. In fact, it’ll wreak havoc on it. With that said, heed the oil change notification on your dashboard.

Check Your Tires

From snowy streets to flora-laden driveways, fall and winter leave a trail of Mother Nature in their wake. Don’t let the seasonal transformations get the best of your tires. If your tires are in poor condition, even seemingly harmless materials like snow and leaves can damage them

Check Your Battery

Unfortunately, car batteries don’t always take kindly to colder temperatures. If you live in a particularly cold region, your battery may go rogue during winter. Without a trained eye, it can be challenging to discern a good battery from a bad one. Consider taking your car to the nearest Audi dealership to have them run a diagnostic test.

Check Your Wipers

Rain, snow, and hail generally accompany fall and winter. In the hopes of staying safe on the road, your wipers should be up to snuff. If your wipers are old and grimy, they can do more harm than good. Invest in a backup pair so that you’re always prepared. After all, low visibility is one of the most dangerous and frightening handicaps while behind the wheel.
