What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2012 Audi Q7?

Here’s Why 2012 Audi Q7 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Audi Q7 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Q7. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Q7 maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2012 Audi Q7!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Q7 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2012 Audi Q7 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Audi Q7 Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Audi Q7 and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Q7's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2012 Audi Q7 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). 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 Q7 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. 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 Q7 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 2012 Audi Q7 running newer, longer. To learn how often Audi recommends you have the oil changed in your 2012 Q7, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2012 Audi Q7.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Audi Q7 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, perform Audi Q7 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 Q7's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Audi Q7 maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Audi Q7 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Audi Q7 radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2012 Audi Q7 maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

2012 Audi Q7 Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2012 Audi Q7. Get answers to common Audi Q7 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Audi Q7 alignment checked? 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 Q7 need high mileage oil? If your Audi Q7 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!
  •  Why are my Audi dashboard lights on? 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 Q7 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
