Bring your 1996 Audi A4 Quattro to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1996 Audi A4 Quattro. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your A4 Quattro may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Audi A4 Quattro battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 A4 Quattro won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1996 A4 Quattro. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 1996 Audi A4 Quattro? We can help with that, too!
