Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2009 Audi A6

How often should I service my 2009 Audi A6?

Here’s Why 2009 Audi A6 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Audi A6 to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your A6 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine A6 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2009 Audi A6!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Audi themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2009 Audi A6 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Audi A6

Bring your 2009 Audi A6 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your A6's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2009 Audi A6? In general, car batteries only last three to 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 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Audi A6 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2009 Audi A6 engine. To learn how often Audi recommends you have the oil changed in your 2009 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 2009 Audi A6.

Maintaining your Audi A6 steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! 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 A6 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 A6's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Audi A6 services, 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!). 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 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Audi A6 radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too.
