How often should I service my 1989 Audi 100 Quattro?
When it comes to your Audi 100 Quattro, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 100 Quattro could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 100 Quattro, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 Audi 100 Quattro!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Audi, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 100 Quattro perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1989 Audi 100 Quattro problems later.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Audi 100 Quattro for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 100 Quattro. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1989 Audi 100 Quattro? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Audi 100 Quattro battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Audi 100 Quattro could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1989 Audi 100 Quattro running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1989 100 Quattro. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1989 Audi 100 Quattro.

Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Audi 100 Quattro steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Audi 100 Quattro's steering system with regular maintenance.
