What to Know About 2009 Audi R8 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Audi R8 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your R8. 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2009 Audi R8!

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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your R8 perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2009 Audi R8 problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Audi R8

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2009 Audi R8 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your R8's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2009 Audi R8 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Audi R8 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. 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 R8 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2009 Audi R8 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2009 R8. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2009 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. 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 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.

Without routine Audi R8 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!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Audi R8’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Audi R8? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2009 Audi R8 maintenance.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2009 Audi R8. Get answers to common Audi R8 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Audi R8? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2009 R8 is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Audi R8? 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 R8 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 R8, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
