Winter Maintenance of Audi

Winter Maintenance of Audi

Without too much delay, let us get right to the point of this article -  the maintenance of your Audi vehicle during the winter!

1. Check the oil
We all know how important oil is to the engine of the vehicle. You will need to have it checked and either topped off or replaced altogether. A mechanic would be able to determine which action should be taken. In order to avoid the thickening of the fluids in your Audi during colder weather, you might want to use an oil with a lower viscosity.

2. Check the car battery
Due to the colder weather during the winter your Audi’s car battery will suffer negatively. This means that it will not be able to utilize its full capacity, maybe even if it fully charged, so take your vehicle to an auto repair shop where a professional would be able to check the car battery and if needed charge it.

3. Check the tires
Have you changed your tires to winter ones yet? And have you checked the tread on said tires? If you haven’t, you really ought to get to that, it is imperative to do so. If you are one of the people who thinks that he doesn’t need winter tires, I would like you to reconsider. Winter tires are far superior when it comes to snowy or icy terrains, in fact, they are even superior if it is just colder. And as far as the tread goes, we all know that a better grip is needed for the winter weather and roads, which means that the tires must have sufficient tread left.

4. Check your wiper blades
If your Audi’s wiper blades are getting old that would mean that their efficiency is going downhill. Maybe they might be able to do the trick during the summer, or spring, or even perhaps in light rain, but they would most definitely not be able to handle the winter weather. Replace them or have them replaced if their time has come.

Choose wisely when choosing an auto repair center for your Audi, and have a safe winter!
