Your Guide to 2009 Audi A3 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Audi A3 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your A3 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 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 2009 Audi A3!

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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your A3 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2009 Audi A3 problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Audi A3

Bring your 2009 Audi A3 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your A3. 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 2009 Audi A3. Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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. 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 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. 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2009 Audi A3's engine run smoother. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2009 A3 in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2009 Audi A3.

Routine upkeep for your Audi A3 suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Audi A3 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Audi A3's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Audi A3 maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Audi A3’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Audi A3? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too.

Questions About 2009 Audi A3 Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2009 Audi A3. Get answers to common Audi A3 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Audi A3? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Audi A3 to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Audi A3 engines.
  • Can Audi dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Audi A3 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
