What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1998 Audi Cabriolet?

Here’s Why 1998 Audi Cabriolet Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Audi Cabriolet, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Cabriolet 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 Cabriolet maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1998 Audi Cabriolet!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Audi, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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 Cabriolet running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1998 Audi Cabriolet problems.

Overview of Essential Audi Cabriolet Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1998 Audi Cabriolet for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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 Cabriolet. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1998 Audi Cabriolet. 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Audi Cabriolet battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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. 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 Cabriolet 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 1998 Audi Cabriolet running newer, longer. To learn how often Audi recommends you have the oil changed in your 1998 Cabriolet, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1998 Audi Cabriolet.

Maintaining your Audi Cabriolet steering and suspension system 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 Cabriolet steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Audi Cabriolet's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Audi Cabriolet services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Audi Cabriolet cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Audi Cabriolet radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1998 Audi Cabriolet maintenance.

1998 Audi Cabriolet Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1998 Audi Cabriolet. Get answers to common Audi Cabriolet maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Audi Cabriolet? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for 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.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Audi Cabriolet? 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 Cabriolet engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Audi? 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 Cabriolet to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
