Your Guide to Audi Scheduled Maintenance Intervals and Procedures

Your Guide to Audi Scheduled Maintenance Intervals and Procedures

Welcome to the Prestige Imports Guide to Audi Scheduled Maintenance Intervals and Procedures. Below you will find comprehensive information on exactly what happens at each scheduled maintenance interval. In fact, this information is presented twice. In the first section you are able to download the official Audi Maintenance Schedule for each model year from 2004 through 2015. Below that you will find the information presented a little differently – by mileage. So you can just choose the mileage that your vehicle currently has, and view what will take place at your next scheduled maintenance visit. As the information in this section can vary slightly by model and year, the information in the official Audi documents (Model Year downloads) is probably a little more accurate. But if you want to have a quick look at what your next service entails, this is a great resource.

Note: This page contains a huge amount of content, to make it easier to navigate much of the information has been “hidden” beneath buttons. To read the information presented in each section heading, simply click on the corresponding button and the information will appear. Click the button again to make it disappear.

 

Download Your Audi Maintenance Schedule by Model Year

If you click the button below, you will be presented with a list of years from 2004 through 2016. Simply click on the year that matches your vehicle’s model year and the official Audi Maintenance Schedule for that model year will pop-up in a new window (if your browser supports opening PDF documents). Alternately, you can right click on the year and save the linked PDF document to your computer for future reference.

Audi Scheduled Maintenance Intervals by Mileage

2017 and Newer

For model year 2017 and later, Audi has changed their scheduled maintenance intervals to fall on the 10’s rather than the 5’s. We will update this page with detailed service explanations as more information becomes available. But for now, the information below should get you started…

  • 10,000 miles or 12 months from date of purchase, whichever occurs first (Complimentary)
  • 20,000 miles or 12 months after the 10,000-mile scheduled maintenance, whichever occurs first
