Your Guide to 2016 Audi S3 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Audi S3 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your S3 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine S3 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2016 Audi S3!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Audi, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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 S3 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2016 Audi S3 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Audi S3

This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2016 Audi S3? 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 S3 may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Audi S3 battery. 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty S3) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Audi S3 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 Audi S3 running newer, longer. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2016 S3 in the chart at the top of this page. 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2016 Audi S3.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Audi S3 can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Audi S3's steering system require regular maintenance.
