Because we’re VW Group specialists, we make sure to use genuine OEM parts for your Audi. Using genuine OEM parts over aftermarket parts are your ticket to a car that’s more reliable, performs at its best and lasts longer.

Service Frequency: How Often to Service Your Audi

Audi suggests servicing your vehicle every 10,000 to 15,000 miles, but it’s always best to consult your owner’s manual for precise guidelines. However, several factors can influence your Audi’s service frequency:

  • Driving Habits: Frequent short trips or stop-and-go city driving might necessitate more frequent service, as it can be harder on your Audi’s systems.
  • Climate: Extreme temperatures and severe weather conditions can impact your car’s maintenance needs.
  • Age and Mileage: Older Audis or high-mileage vehicles may require more frequent check-ups to address wear and tear.
  • Special Considerations: If you often drive in heavy traffic, your brakes and engine may need closer attention.

Budgeting for Car Servicing

While the cost of servicing varies depending on the specific maintenance required and your Audi model, there are several factors to consider:

  • Age and Mileage: Older vehicles and those with high mileage may require more extensive servicing.
  • Type of Service: Routine Audi servicing, diagnostic checks, brake service, engine maintenance, and oil changes all come at different price points.
  • Quality Matters: High-quality parts and service ensure your Audi’s reliability, which might be a bit pricier but pays off in the long run.

To save on Audi servicing costs, consider the following:

  • Regular Maintenance: Investing in regular maintenance helps prevent costly issues down the road.
  • Scheduled Servicing: Stick to Audi’s recommended service schedule to catch problems early.
  • Trust the Experts: Rely on specialists who understand Audi’s unique needs, like Vasstech, to keep your car in top shape.

Ensuring Safety Through Audi Diagnostic Checks

Diagnostic checks delve deep into your Audi’s electronic systems to identify potential problems, such as issues with the braking system, engine, or electronic stability control. This early detection prevents small issues from escalating into major safety concerns.

For instance, a diagnostic check may uncover a faulty ABS sensor, which could affect your car’s ability to stop safely. In another scenario, it could detect an issue with your airbag system, ensuring it deploys correctly in the event of a collision.

Audi owners trust in the brand’s reputation for performance and safety. Regular diagnostic checks at Vasstech not only keep your Audi running smoothly but also provide peace of mind, knowing your car is safe for you and your passengers.

Considering your Audi’s Common Defects

Luckily, this is something our expert technicians will be looking out for when you bring your pride and joy in for your Audi’s car service, ready to remove and replace an old chain if necessary.

Maximising Resale Value

If you’re thinking about the long-term value of your Audi, regular Audi servicing is your golden ticket. Consistent maintenance preserves your car’s resale value in a number, making your vehicle more attractive to prospective buyers. A well-maintained Audi is a reliable Audi.

A documented service history, prolongs your Audi’s lifespan and ensures it looks and feels its best. Potential buyers appreciate a car that’s been well-kept inside and out.
