Here’s Why 2018 Audi Q5 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Audi Q5, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Q5. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Q5, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2018 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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Q5's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2018 Audi Q5 problems.

Overview of Essential Audi Q5 Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2018 Audi Q5 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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.

Could your 2018 Audi Q5 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Audi Q5 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Q5 stranded. Your Audi Q5 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 Audi Q5 engine. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2018 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2018 Audi Q5.

Maintaining your Audi Q5 steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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, perform Audi Q5 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Audi Q5's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Audi Q5 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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Audi Q5 cooling, heating, and climate control system.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 Audi Q5. Get answers to common Audi Q5 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Audi Q5? 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 does my Audi Q5 need 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Audi? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Audi Q5, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
