When it comes to your Audi A4 Quattro, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your A4 Quattro has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get A4 Quattro 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 2012 Audi A4 Quattro!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Audi, your vehicle manufacturer.

Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your A4 Quattro running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2012 Audi A4 Quattro problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Audi A4 Quattro Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Audi A4 Quattro and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your A4 Quattro’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2012 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. 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 A4 Quattro battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty A4 Quattro) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Audi A4 Quattro 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 2012 Audi A4 Quattro's engine run smoother.

2012 Audi A4 Quattro Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2012 Audi A4 Quattro. Get answers to common Audi A4 Quattro maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Audi A4 Quattro 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 use high mileage oil in my Audi A4 Quattro? 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 A4 Quattro engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Audi? 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 A4 Quattro to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
