Here’s Why 2012 Audi R8 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Audi R8 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 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2012 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. 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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your R8's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2012 Audi R8 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Audi R8

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Audi R8 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. 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 2012 Audi R8? 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. 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 R8 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 R8 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2012 R8. 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 2012 Audi R8? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Audi R8 suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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 the appropriate Audi R8 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Audi R8's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Audi R8 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. Need a new Audi R8 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 R8 maintenance and repairs.

  • 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.

  • When does my Audi R8 need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Audi R8? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my Audi dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Audi R8 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
