Here’s Why 2012 Audi A3 Quattro Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Audi A3 Quattro, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your A3 Quattro 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. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your A3 Quattro, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2012 Audi A3 Quattro maintenance schedule!

Audi knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. 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 prevent common 2012 Audi A3 Quattro problems.

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2012 Audi A3 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 A3 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2012 Audi A3 Quattro. 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Audi A3 Quattro battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty A3 Quattro) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Audi A3 Quattro won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
