Audi maintenance is extremely important and necessary if you want to maintain the long life expectancy Audi has strived so long and hard to achieve. Sure, in a perfect world, items of luxury would live forever making our investment in such indulgences a no-brainer. Unfortunately we are not there yet, but it would not be surprising if Audi was the first of its class to finally achieve Energizer Bunny status, eliminating Audi maintenance requirements all together.

Cars have come a long way since the need of full-service gas stations, and modern advancements have extended automobile service increments in a big way. As for as driving forever with not so much as a tire change…well, that most probably will never be seen, not in our lifetime anyway. The good news is that adhering to a regular Audi maintenance schedule is the easiest way to insure you will receive hundreds of thousands of miles in high-performance driving luxury inherent to the Audi name.

Audi has recommended service intervals which are geared toward vehicles driven under normal driving conditions. Vehicles operated under more severe conditions will require more frequent intervals to check wear and tear items such as brake pads, tires, brake discs, and clutches and proper functioning and replacement. Audi maintenance intervals exist in three types of service groups: oil service, minor maintenance and major maintenance. Excluded from the major service groups are other intervals based on time rather than mileage. Below is a list of the Audi components that are serviced within the different types of maintenance schedules.
