Service Interval Information

What are the Main Service Intervals for My Vehicle?

When should you schedule Audi service? Refer to your owner's manual to learn the schedule recommended for your exact model and adhere to the recommendations. For most drivers, this is a 15-30-60-90 schedule. When your Audi reaches these miles, schedule service to keep the many components underneath the hood free from wear and tear and damage that causes vehicle breakdown. Regular service keeps the vehicle warranty valid, increases the vehicle's resale value, and ensures proper emissions.

Recommended Oil Change Every vehicle needs an oil change every 3,000 to 6,000 miles. Although most manufacturers recommend an oil change when it reaches the 3,000-mile mark, some of the synthetic oil blends allow longer operation between uses. Refer to your vehicle owners manual to learn when to change the oil and make sure to adhere to this change schedule to prevent any problems with the engine. Over time, engine oil wears and when it does, dirt, debris, and that sludge can cause trouble for the engine. Make sure it is changed as necessary to minimize damage.

What type of services will the technician provide during the tune-ups? Each model vehicle has its own unique needs, although many are the same amongst most models. Here is a general guideline of what to expect at each service visit your schedule for your vehicle. Is it time to service your Audi to keep it running efficiently for longer?

15,000-Mile Service

The 15,000-mile service is the first recommended to make. This occurs at about one-year of ownership. The technician will inspect the fluids underneath the hood, as well as inspect the components for any signs of damage or wear and tear. A tire rotation is important at this visit since it ensures even wear along the tires. The air filter should also be replaced, which increases fuel efficiency!
