Overview of Essential Audi A4 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2003 Audi A4 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check.

Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your A4's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2003 Audi A4 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Audi A4 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 A4 stranded. Your Audi A4 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2003 Audi A4 running newer, longer. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2003 A4 in the chart at the top of this page. 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 2003 Audi A4? We can help with that, too!

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 A4's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Audi A4 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.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Audi A4? 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 does my Audi A4 need 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 A4 engines.
  •  Why are my Audi dashboard lights on? 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 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
