Your Guide to 2018 Audi S3 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Audi S3, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your S3 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your S3, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2018 Audi S3!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your S3 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Audi S3 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Audi S3 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Audi S3 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your S3’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2018 Audi S3. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your S3 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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. 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 S3 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 Audi S3 engine. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2018 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2018 Audi S3.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Audi S3 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Audi S3 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Audi S3's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Audi S3 maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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 S3’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Audi S3 radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2018 Audi S3 maintenance.
