2012 Audi A4 Drivetrain Service

All About 2012 Audi A4 Drivetrain Service

Your A4’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your A4 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 Audi A4, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Audi's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

Audi A4 Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2012 Audi A4 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Audi A4 may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Audi A4.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2012 Audi A4 drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
