What to Know About 2011 Audi R8 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Audi R8 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your R8. But how do you know what service to get and when? 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 2011 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; 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your R8 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2011 Audi R8 problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Audi R8 Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2011 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2011 Audi R8? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your R8 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Audi R8 battery. 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 be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2011 Audi R8's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2011 R8. 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2011 Audi R8.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Audi R8 can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Audi R8's steering system with 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 it time to replace the radiator in your Audi R8? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2011 Audi R8 maintenance.
