What to Know About 2018 Audi A3 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Audi A3 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your A3. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your A3, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2018 Audi A3!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Audi themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Audi A3 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Audi A3 Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2018 Audi A3 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your A3's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2018 Audi A3 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). 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your A3 stranded. Your Audi A3 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 Audi A3 engine. To learn how often Audi recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 A3, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2018 Audi A3? We can help with that, too!

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 Audi A3. Get answers to common Audi A3 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Audi A3 alignment checked? 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? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Audi A3? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my Audi dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Audi A3 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
