Here’s Why 2011 Audi A3 Quattro Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Audi A3 Quattro to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your A3 Quattro has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get A3 Quattro maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2011 Audi A3 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your A3 Quattro's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2011 Audi A3 Quattro problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Audi A3 Quattro

Bring your 2011 Audi A3 Quattro to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your A3 Quattro's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2011 Audi A3 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Audi A3 Quattro battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 A3 Quattro won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2011 Audi A3 Quattro engine. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2011 A3 Quattro in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2011 Audi A3 Quattro.

Routine upkeep for your Audi A3 Quattro suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Audi A3 Quattro suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Audi A3 Quattro's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Audi A3 Quattro maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Audi A3 Quattro engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Audi A3 Quattro radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
