When it comes to your Audi 200, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 200 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem.

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Audi themselves.

Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 200 running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1989 Audi 200 problems later.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Audi 200 and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 200. 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 200? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Audi 200 battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 200 stranded. Your Audi 200 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1989 Audi 200 engine.
