2020 Audi A3 Maintenance

Here’s Why 2020 Audi A3 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

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, your A3 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine A3 maintenance. Just follow your 2020 Audi A3 maintenance schedule!

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 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's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2020 Audi A3 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Audi A3

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2020 Audi A3 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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 2020 Audi A3. 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 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2020 Audi A3's engine run smoother. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2020 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2020 Audi A3? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Audi A3 suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Audi A3 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Audi A3's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Audi A3 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Audi A3 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Audi A3 radiator?

Take an active role in maintaining your 2020 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? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2020 A3 is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
