  • When should I have Audi A6 alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage!

High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Audi A6 engines.
  •  Why are my Audi dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Audi A6 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
