2013 Audi Q5 Maintenance and Service Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Audi Q5 due for service yet?

Is It Time For 2013 Audi Q5 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2013 Audi Q5, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Q5 bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2013 Audi Q5 in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Q5 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Audi Q5’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Audi Q5 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2013 Audi Q5 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Q5’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Audi Q5 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2013 Audi Q5’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2013 Q5 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Audi's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Audi Q5? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Audi intended.
  • Does my Audi Q5 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Q5’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
