Here’s Why 2017 Audi A6 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Audi A6 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your A6. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine A6 maintenance. Just follow your 2017 Audi A6 maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Audi themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your A6 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2017 Audi A6 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Audi A6 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2017 Audi A6 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your A6. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2017 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! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty A6) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Audi A6 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2017 Audi A6 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2017 A6. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2017 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Audi A6 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Audi A6's steering and suspension system.

2017 Audi A6 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2017 Audi A6. Get answers to common Audi A6 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • 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 does my Audi A6 need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. 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? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Audi A6 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
