2012 Audi A4 Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Audi A4’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2012 Audi A4 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2012 Audi A4, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your A4 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2012 Audi A4, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Audi A4’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Audi A4 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2012 Audi A4’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2012 Audi A4’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Audi A4 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Audi A4 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

2012 A4 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Audi's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Audi A4 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Audi intended.
  • When does Audi A4 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your A4 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Audi's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
