Overview of Essential Audi A6 Quattro Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2008 Audi A6 Quattro to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your A6 Quattro’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2008 Audi A6 Quattro 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 A6 Quattro battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your A6 Quattro stranded. Your Audi A6 Quattro won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2008 Audi A6 Quattro's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2008 A6 Quattro. 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 2008 Audi A6 Quattro.

Maintaining your Audi A6 Quattro steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

If you fall behind on routine Audi A6 Quattro maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Audi A6 Quattro engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Audi A6 Quattro? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Audi A6 Quattro to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Audi A6 Quattro? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my Audi dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Audi A6 Quattro, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
