What Are The Benefits of Frequent Service?

Receiving frequent vehicle service in Westwood improves your vehicle's safety for you and your passengers. When you bring your vehicle in for routine maintenance, our service technicians will also examine other components of your vehicle. Another benefit of getting frequent service is that your sedan or SUV will be able to perform at its best.

How Do I Know When It's Time to Service My Vehicle?

There is no "one size fits all" when it comes to servicing your vehicle, but we would recommend a complete service at least once a year. Remember, how often you service your vehicle depends on the number of miles you drive, how well your car is maintained, weather conditions, and the surfaces of the road you drive on.

How Often Should I Get an Oil Change?

It is recommended to get an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Newer models can typically last every 7,000 miles or every three months. If you happen to be driving more than usual or if you hear increased engine noise, you may want to bring your vehicle down to our Audi service center, and we will check the oil life for you.

Questions About Service?

Engine oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and engine coolant are some of the fluids your vehicle needs. These fluid levels can change depending on how much you drive your vehicle. The service technicians at Audi Westwood recommend checking your fluids when you come in for an oil change or every two to three months.

How Often Should I Change My Air Filter?

How often you should change your air filter depends on how much airflow your vehicle is getting. Usually, we recommend changing your air filter every 20,000 miles or once a year, whichever comes first. You can also check your air filter yourself by referencing your owner's manual.

How Often Do I Need to Get My Brakes Checked?

You should get your brakes checked every 10,000 miles. If you notice a squeaking or squealing noise when you apply your brakes, we recommend bringing your vehicle to our service department. Another sign that you should get your brakes checked is if you feel your vehicle shaking when you press down on the brakes.

When Should I Replace My Brake Pads?

Brake pads do wear out over time. Generally, brake pads can be replaced every 50,000 miles but this depends on your driving habits and the brake material. Brake pads are available in several compounds to suit various driving needs.

When Should I Replace My Car Battery?

Depending on your driving habits and various weather conditions, you should consider changing your car battery every 3 to 4 years. If you are having a hard time starting your vehicle or if you see that your headlights are dim, you may need to replace your battery sooner.

When Do I Need to Get a Tire Rotation?

You can get your tires rotated approximately every 7,500 miles or every six months - whichever comes first. You can also get a tire rotation when you stop by our service department for an oil change. Of course, these numbers can change depending on the make and model of your vehicle.

How Much Air Pressure Should I Put into My Tires?

Air pressure in tires is measured in pounds per square inch-also known as PSI. Typically, the recommended pressure ranges between 30 and 35 PSI, but be sure to check your manufacturer's recommendation. It will be printed on a label inside your vehicle.

How Often Do Tires Need To Be Replaced?

At the Audi Westwood service department, we recommend getting your tires checked every 3 to 4 years or every 12,000 to 15,000 miles. Of course, we can always check and rotate your tires to ensure they are in good condition when you come in for routine maintenance.
