Overview of Essential Audi Q3 Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2018 Audi Q3 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Q3's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2018 Audi Q3 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Audi Q3 battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Q3) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Audi Q3 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 2018 Audi Q3 running newer, longer. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2018 Q3 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2018 Audi Q3? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Audi Q3 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Audi Q3 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Audi Q3's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Audi Q3 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Audi Q3’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Audi Q3? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2018 Audi Q3 maintenance.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Audi Q3? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2018 Q3 is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When does my Audi Q3 need high mileage oil? If your Audi Q3 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Audi? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Audi Q3 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
