How often should I service my 1987 Audi 5000 Quattro?

Here’s Why 1987 Audi 5000 Quattro Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Audi 5000 Quattro to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 5000 Quattro has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 5000 Quattro, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1987 Audi 5000 Quattro!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Audi themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 5000 Quattro perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Audi 5000 Quattro problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Audi 5000 Quattro

Bring your 1987 Audi 5000 Quattro to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 5000 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 1987 Audi 5000 Quattro? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 5000 Quattro may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Audi 5000 Quattro battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 5000 Quattro won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1987 Audi 5000 Quattro engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 5000 Quattro. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1987 Audi 5000 Quattro? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Audi 5000 Quattro steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions.

You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Audi 5000 Quattro steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Audi 5000 Quattro's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Audi 5000 Quattro services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.
