Here’s Why 1999 Audi A8 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Audi A8 and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your A8 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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 A8 maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1999 Audi A8!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Audi themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your A8 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1999 Audi A8 problems later.

Overview of Essential Audi A8 Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1999 Audi A8 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your A8. 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.

Could your 1999 Audi A8 be ready for a new battery? 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). 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 A8 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 A8) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Audi A8 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

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 1999 Audi A8 running newer, longer.
