It’s best to get a brake check before your Audi 5000 Quattro shows signs of brake troubles. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like an oil change. However, if routine car care has slipped your mind for quite some time, you might want to pay attention and watch for the following brake issues.
Brake problems include unusual noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Audi 5000 Quattro like the back of your hand. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. Vehicle manufacturers like Audi generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Not sure if something’s wrong?

How often do 1986 Audi 5000 Quattro brake pads need to be replaced? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your 5000 Quattro. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Audi 5000 Quattros that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your 5000 Quattro, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Audi’s standards.
