Audi Maintenance Tips for the Spring

Audi Maintenance Tips for the Spring

After the winter, your Audi will need some maintenance services in order to perform at its best. The following list will help you prioritize the most important things you will need to do or to have done for you.

First things first, have the tires changed if they are currently winter ones. If they are all-season tires, there is a possibility that you will not need to change them, but that would depend on how worn out the tread is. You can perform the penny or quarter test to determine if the tread is sufficient.

It will be a good idea to check the wheel alignment. You can do so while you are driving, just pay attention and if you notice the car drifting to one side then your Audi probably needs an alignment.

Have the oil and filter changed at an auto repair shop after the winter ends in preparation for the upcoming warmer months of the spring.

If you notice that the wiper blades of your Audi have lost their integrity, you should change them or have them changed by a professional mechanic. Should you choose to change them yourself, you have to be careful with the size of the wiper blades, you will need to get the same size as yours so that they fit.

Hopefully, the tips above will be useful when you are getting your Audi ready for the spring.

The rise of the automotive industry in Kansas City
Kansas City is officially the nation's second-largest auto hub. City’s long history of auto production dates back to 1913 when Henry Ford made a decision to choose this region to be the first one outside of Detroit for auto production. The most recent expansion of Ford Motor Co. in this particular area was in 2011. At that time, the company announced a $1.2 billion investment that was meant to expand and retool Kansas City Assembly Plant, which is located in Claycomo. This plant is responsible for manufacturing the Transit and the F-150 full-size van.
