The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Audi, your vehicle manufacturer.

Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your A8 Quattro perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2011 Audi A8 Quattro problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Audi A8 Quattro Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2011 Audi A8 Quattro 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 A8 Quattro’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2011 Audi A8 Quattro? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your A8 Quattro may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 A8 Quattro battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your A8 Quattro stranded. Your Audi A8 Quattro won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2011 Audi A8 Quattro's engine run smoother. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2011 A8 Quattro in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2011 Audi A8 Quattro.

If you fall behind on routine Audi A8 Quattro maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Audi A8 Quattro cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Audi A8 Quattro radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it.
