Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2012 Audi A8 Quattro? 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Audi A8 Quattro 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 A8 Quattro won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Audi A8 Quattro? Check your car for pothole damage!

Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
