2012 Audi A5 Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Audi A5’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 2012 Audi A5 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2012 Audi A5, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your A5 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2012 Audi A5, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your A5 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Audi A5 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2012 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 2012 Audi A5’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Audi A5 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Audi A5 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 A5 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Audi A5 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your A5 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Audi's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
