Your Guide to 2006 Audi A6 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Audi A6 to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your A6 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get A6 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2006 Audi A6 maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Audi, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your A6 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2006 Audi A6 problems.

Overview of Essential Audi A6 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2006 Audi A6 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with 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’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2006 Audi A6. 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Audi A6 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 stranded. Your Audi A6 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2006 Audi A6's engine run smoother. To learn how often Audi recommends you have the oil changed in your 2006 A6, 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2006 Audi A6.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Audi A6 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Audi A6 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Audi A6's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Audi A6 maintenance, 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 A6 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Audi A6? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2006 Audi A6 maintenance and repairs.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Audi A6? You know your Audi A6 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 should I switch my Audi A6 to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Audi A6? 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.
  • Can Audi dashboard warning lights wait? 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, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
