Your Guide to 2008 Audi R8 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Audi R8 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your R8 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. There's no need to guess when it's time to get R8 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2008 Audi R8 maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Audi themselves. 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; 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 R8 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2008 Audi R8 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Audi R8 Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2008 Audi R8 and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your R8. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2008 Audi R8. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Audi R8 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your R8 stranded. Your Audi R8 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 2008 Audi R8's engine run smoother. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2008 R8 in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 2008 Audi R8.

Routine upkeep for your Audi R8 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. 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, provide Audi R8 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Audi R8's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Audi R8 services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Audi R8 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Audi R8 radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2008 Audi R8 maintenance and repairs.

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

Questions About 2008 Audi R8 Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2008 Audi R8. Get answers to common Audi R8 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Audi R8? You know your Audi R8 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 R8 to high mileage oil? If your Audi R8 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!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Audi? 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 R8 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
