How often should I service my 1983 Audi Quattro?
When it comes to your Audi Quattro, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Quattro could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Quattro, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1983 Audi Quattro!
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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Quattro's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1983 Audi Quattro problems in the future.
Bring your 1983 Audi Quattro to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Quattro’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1983 Audi Quattro? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Quattro may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Audi Quattro 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 Quattro) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Audi Quattro won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1983 Audi Quattro's engine run smoother.

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 1983 Audi Quattro?
