2018 Audi S3 Drivetrain Repair

2018 Audi S3 Drivetrain Service

Your S3’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Audi, from back to front. It’s one of your S3’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2018 Audi S3, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Audi's recommendations.

Audi S3 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2018 Audi S3 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your S3 might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Audi S3 doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2018 Audi S3? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
