Your Guide to 2018 Audi RS3 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Audi RS3 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your RS3 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine RS3 maintenance. Just follow your 2018 Audi RS3 maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Audi, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your RS3's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Audi RS3 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Audi RS3 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Audi RS3 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 RS3. 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.

Could your 2018 Audi RS3 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 RS3 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your RS3 stranded. Your Audi RS3 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 2018 Audi RS3'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 2018 RS3. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2018 Audi RS3.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Audi RS3 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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 RS3 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Audi RS3's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Audi RS3 services, 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 RS3’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Audi RS3 radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2018 Audi RS3 maintenance.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 Audi RS3. Get answers to common Audi RS3 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Audi RS3? You know your Audi RS3 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 use high mileage oil in my Audi RS3? 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 RS3 engines.
  •  Why are my Audi dashboard lights on? 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 RS3 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
