Here’s Why 2010 Audi A5 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Audi A5 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your A5 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 A5 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2010 Audi A5 maintenance schedule!

Audi knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your A5 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2010 Audi A5 problems.

Overview of Essential Audi A5 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2010 Audi A5 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your A5’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2010 Audi A5 be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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 A5 battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your A5 stranded. Your Audi A5 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2010 Audi A5 engine. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2010 A5 in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2010 Audi A5? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Audi A5 suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Audi A5 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Audi A5's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Audi A5 services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Audi A5 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Audi A5? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2010 Audi A5 maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

2010 Audi A5 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2010 Audi A5. Get answers to common Audi A5 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Audi A5? You know your Audi A5 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Audi A5 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 A5 engines.
  • Can Audi dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Audi A5 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
