Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Audi 80 Quattro

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1988 Audi 80 Quattro for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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 80 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.

Could your 1988 Audi 80 Quattro be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 80 Quattro may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Audi 80 Quattro battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 80 Quattro stranded. Your Audi 80 Quattro won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
