2011 Audi A5 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Audi recommend steering and suspension service for 2011 Audi A5s?

Does Your 2011 Audi A5 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2011 Audi A5, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your A5 bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2011 Audi A5, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Audi A5 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Audi A5

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2011 Audi A5’s suspension. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2011 Audi A5’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Audi A5 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2011 Audi A5’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 A5 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Audi's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Audi A5? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Audi A5 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your A5 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
