2018 Audi A3 Quattro Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2018 Audi A3 Quattro

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your A3 Quattro's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your A3 Quattro and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2018 Audi A3 Quattro to maintain its performance power. Follow Audi's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Audi A3 Quattro Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2018 Audi A3 Quattro drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your A3 Quattro might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Audi A3 Quattro.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2018 Audi A3 Quattro? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
