Audi Austin owners know their cars well, so when something goes wrong it can be frustrating to diagnose the issue. However, there are some simple steps you can take to keep your Audi running smoothly and stop problems before they start.   

Change your oil regularly

. Keeping your oil clean is essential to keeping your car running properly. Audi's have a long-life synthetic oil that typically lasts longer, but changing it every 3 months or 5000 miles is recommended to keep your engine in good shape. Not only will this help you prevent having to pay for major repairs, but it will also improve gas mileage and performance. 

Check tire pressure often

Under or over inflated tires can cause a lot of damage to your car, so it is important to keep up with the recommended tire pressure in your Audi. Checking how much air is in each one once a month and having it filled when necessary will help you avoid later issues like blowouts and poor performance. 

Get an oil change before winter sets in

Audi's are equipped to handle the coldest of conditions, but changing your oil before temperatures drop is recommended. Cold weather can cause your engine to run harder and getting an early oil change will make sure it doesn't have any problems starting up in the winter. It also helps keep down the cost of repairs if something does go wrong. 

Do a tune-up to make sure everything is running smoothly 

As the car gets older, it's recommended to do a tune-up every 60,000 miles or so. This service includes an oil change, inspection of belts and hoses, checking battery connections and more. Most shops will charge around $400 for this service, but it is worth it if you want avoid expensive repairs later on. 

Keep up with regular maintenance'

Even if you follow the above steps, it's also important to try and keep up with regular maintenance as much as possible. Taking your Audi to a repair shop for general checkups every few months can help diagnose any problems before they happen and save yourself time and money.
