Here’s Why 2016 Audi Q5 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Audi Q5 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Q5 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Q5, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2016 Audi Q5 maintenance schedule!

Audi knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Q5 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 Audi Q5 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Audi Q5 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Audi Q5 for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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 Q5's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2016 Audi Q5? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Q5 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Audi Q5 battery. 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Q5 stranded. Your Audi Q5 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 Audi Q5 running newer, longer. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2016 Q5 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2016 Audi Q5.

Routine upkeep for your Audi Q5 suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Audi Q5 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Audi Q5's steering system require regular maintenance.

Questions About 2016 Audi Q5 Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2016 Audi Q5. Get answers to common Audi Q5 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Audi Q5? You know your Audi Q5 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Audi Q5 to high mileage oil? 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 Q5 engines.
  • Can Audi dashboard warning lights wait? 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 Q5 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
