Here’s Why 2012 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 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your A5, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2012 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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your A5 perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2012 Audi A5 problems.

Overview of Essential Audi A5 Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2012 Audi A5 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your A5. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2012 Audi A5? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your A5 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Audi A5 battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your A5 stranded. Your Audi A5 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2012 Audi A5's engine run smoother. To learn how often Audi recommends you have the oil changed in your 2012 A5, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2012 Audi A5.

Maintaining your Audi A5 steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions.

Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Audi A5 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. 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.

Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Audi A5’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.
