Every 10,000 Miles - Minor Maintenance

For your first visit and every 10,000 miles after, you have a minor inspection of your A4 to make sure everything is running smoothly. When the certified-technicians take a look at your car, they will assess the braking system, which includes the thickness of your brake pads, as well a provide a multi-point inspection.

They will also change and replace your oil and oil filter, as well as record the completeness of your tire repair kit. Finally, they rest your service reminder display.

Every 20,000 Miles - Standard Maintenance

Your next appointment should happen at the 20,000-mile mark (and every 20,000 miles thereafter) and is a bit more extensive. During this visit, professionals will take a deeper look into your vehicle, first inspecting the body of your A4 for paint damage, corrosion, and more.

They will also take a close look at your brake system, engine, transmission, and steering system to make sure everything is up to code. Along with a road test and multi-point check, other areas they thoroughly inspect are:

  • Interior & Exterior Lighting
  • Front & Rear Axle/Suspension Components
  • Horn, Instrument Cluster, Sunroof System, & Safety Belts
  • Tires & Spare Tire & The Underbody
  • Wiper Blades (replace if needed)

Additionally,  Audi A4 models will also receive an assessment of the connected battery box, lubrication on the door hinging and any other places that need it, and an oil change. The engine coolant system will also be checked for proper fluid levels.
