Audi Servicing in Oldham, Bury Manchester
As an Audi driver you already know about quality and style. Volksmaster have been looking after Audis for over 20 years and have worked on everything from the sporty TT Roadster to the luxurious S8 executive saloon. You can be confident that the quality of our workmanship will help keep your Audi in top class condition whether you need a service or a repair.
Audi is one of the three major premium car manufacturers from Germany, alongside BMW and Mercedes. Unlike BMW and Mercedes though, Audi is part of the Volkswagen Group (VAG), which includes Volkswagen itself, as well as Seat, Skoda, Porsche, Bentley, Lamborghini and Bugatti. It is, by some margin, the biggest automotive group on the planet, and Audi is their premium mainstream manufacturer. Because manufacturers share platforms and parts inside the Volkswagen Group, a lot of the stuff you see on high-end Audis you also end up seeing on Bentleys and Lamborghinis (engines, infotainment systems, etc.).
Audi’s naming convention follows a simple pattern: cars start with the letter ‘A’ followed by the number indicating their segment (higher is bigger), and SUVs start with the letter ‘Q’ followed by a number. As you can imagine, the A1 is their most compact city car, followed by the now-defunct A2, and their best-seller, the A3. Likewise, the Q2 is the company’s mini SUV, but they are working on a Q1 at the moment. The Q3 is a subcompact luxury crossover, followed by the mid-size Q5, and the full-sized Q7, which is also available as a seven-seater. Last year Audi rolled out the Q8, a coupe variant of the Q7, to rival the likes of the X6 and the GLE.
Following the A3 you have Audi’s A4 luxury saloon, a direct competitor to the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes’ C-Class. It is the only front-wheel-drive car of the three, but you can specify it with Audi’s brilliant Quattro all-wheel-drive system. The A5 is a coupe/convertible based on the A4, and it’s the same story with the A6 and the A7, but they’re slightly larger and are direct competitors to the E-Class and the 5-Series. If you want Audi’s largest and most luxurious car, you’ll have to step up to the A8.
Much like BMW’s M and Mercedes’ AMG division, Audi has an in-house performance division called Audi Sport, formerly known as quattro GmbH (it caused confusion with their Quattro all-wheel-drive system). They take luxurious but ordinary Audi cars and transform them into genuine monsters with supercar-like performance. Some of their greatest hits include the RS3, RS4, and RS6, but their most popular product is the Audi R8. A genuine supercar which can be driven daily come rain or shine, it is one of the most desirable cars on the planet. It uses the same V10 engine as the one found in the Lamborghini Huracan, but the first-generation Audi R8 was also available with a V8.
With such a wide lineup, servicing mostly depends on each individual model. RS variants and the R8 are obviously going to be more costly to run since they use performance components, but on the whole, Audi cars are widely regarded as being some of the most reliable luxury cars money can buy. Servicing and maintenance go a long way when it comes to reliability and preventing deprecation.
Audi’s smallest 1.0 and 1.2-litre TFSI engines are the cheapest to run and service since they’re the least complex. Petrol engines ranging from 1.4 to 2.0-litre share a similar structure, so they’re relatively easy to work on. Most Audis you see on the road are diesels, but there’s a very good reason for that. Apart from the fact that they’re extremely frugal, Audi’s diesel engines (up to 2.0-litres) are shared with Volkswagen, and are probably the most bulletproof engines fitted to any modern car, of any type. The slightly larger 2.7 and 3.0-liter are V6 units and are more powerful, but surprisingly, not that much costlier to service.
Common issues include diesel particulate filters with older cars, but all diesels suffer from DPF issues as you rack up the miles. Besides that, your Audi shouldn’t give you a lot of worries. Servicing should be performed by experienced technicians, especially if you need a cambelt and a waterpump replacement. At Volksmaster, we’ve got the right tools and people to work on every Audi model produced. If you’ve got a question, don’t hesitate to give us a call or visit us in Oldham (0161 624 5060), Bury (0161 761 3030) or at the Van Centre (0161 628 5270) or complete the booking form, we’ll be more than happy to help.

Digital Online Servicing
The Digital Service Schedule is the new way of recording and protecting your Audi/Volkswagen service history. All vehicles built from November 2012 onwards will now have their entire service history stored electronically in a secure online database.
Volksmaster will provide you with a print-out of the service record each time you visit.
The Digital Service Schedule has many advantages over the traditional paper service record including:
- Access to the full service history for the life of the vehicle from any Volksmaster Centre
- A security code which can be verified by any Audi Centre to provide added reassurance when buying or selling a vehicle
- Protection against forgery or the records being lost
- Proof of service work to protect your warranty
Maintaining a full and up-to-date service history which is trustworthy and accurate will help preserve the resale price of your vehicle.
Arranging Your Service
Drop your car off
Simply drop your car off with us between 8am and 10am and in most cases your vehicle will be ready for collection the same day between 3.30 and 5.30. Outside these hours you are welcome to park.
Wait with your car
Most servicing and repair work can be done while you wait. If this is your preference we have a superb waiting area equipped with free hot and cold drinks and a interesting viewing area where you can watch our trained technicians working on your vehicle.
If your vehicle needs to stay with us for 1 day or longer then you are able to pre-book one of our courtesy vehicles to keep you mobile.
Pick up / drop off
The ultimate hassle free solution; one of our drivers will arrange to collect your vehicle from your home or place of work at a pre-arranged time and then return your vehicle when the work is complete. Our service advisors will contact you when the vehicle arrives on site during the day to discuss the progress of the work and then advise you of the time you can expect your vehicle back. Contact our service advisors for more details.

Cannot praise them highly enough - recommended by a friend for their attention to new Covid 19 situation when they had a car situation 2 weeks ago- had a situation requiring immediate action myself and the good hygiene controls had become even better. Fixed screen in reception - key disinfected in and out/ key elements of car disinfected in and out and great price for job. The 'new' way forward. Thank you. Stay safe. Well done for embracing new normalMags Poulton07/05/20

Amazing, went in for brake pads and discs, great hospitality, customer always comes first will be coming here forever 🙂jahanzayb kayani18/03/20
Brilliant service from these guys, car feels brand new, even washed and vacuumed it too...think I will use these more in the future, see how long I can keep my 12yo car going for...hopefully another 12 years?Darren Bastin13/03/20
Great service Great service, really good prices and they keep you informed of what's going on. This is my fourth time using Volksmaster at Oldham and I wouldn't take my car anywhere else. Works are done quickly and at a fair price. Any extra works found when the car is in are highlighted and they let you know and give the options of what you want doing. The staff all seem like they actually want to do the best for their customers which is not common of other places I've used for car works. Only one niggle, that's the online quote request facility on the website. It doesn't seem to work. I've tried it twice and no one ever gets in touch so am guessing it's got a glitch, however, whenever you telephone you always get dealt with efficiently and courteously.Jonathan D12/03/20
Always friendly and helpful, really know their stuff.
They will advise honestly and charge fairly.
i would not use any other.Roy Clare09/03/20
Volksmaster have looked after my Touareg for the past three years and have done a great job servicing and MOT'ing it - their work is always to a high standard and at a great price. Recommend them to anyone.Anthony Boggiano03/03/20
Took my daughter's car here for it's second service because the previous owner had it's first service carried out by Volksmaster Bury and he recommended them to me. RUBBISH service!!
Only joking, everything was great; polite, friendly professional service and a quick turnaround (the service was completed before I had finished my lunch) I will be bringing the car back here for the next service.

Fantastic, professional service from start to finish.
From booking in and being kept up to date by Stacy, to the explanation of the issue and how they resolved it by Nathan.
Would highly recommend all the team at Volksmaster.Andy Entwistle06/02/20
Another Visit to Volksmaster, another happy experience! Only went for wheel balancing this time, however once again their service was fantastic. They gave me readings of each wheel before and after each one was balanced, and the car drives bang on now! Will see you next time the car comes in for a service.Chris Lukoczki28/01/20Laszlone Foczeny24/01/20

I had quite a bad central locking fault on my Caddy, which was a real pain for me. Volksmaster did a cracking job to find and fix the fault and went above and beyond in all their service. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff also. Cracking job and service from Volksmaster, would highly recommend.Steven Drew14/01/20
Attended the garage recently on two separate occasions (different reasons). Staff were helpful, polite and informative they didn’t speak to me like I was an idiot, from booking the car in to collecting it later. The garage and forecourt was clean and tidy giving a good impression. Would highly recommend this garageKaty Mitchell20/12/19

Second time taking my car here, service is fantastic and prices very reasonable. Wouldn’t take my car anywhere else.Tom20/12/19
I was recommended to VM by a friend when I bought a VW. Finding an honest mechanic isn’t always easy but Ryan has been super helpful any time I’ve had to take my car in. They won’t convince you to have work done that isn’t needed and give you an honest assessment. Plus they have free sweets on the desk 👍🏻M Laxton20/12/19
Took my car here for the first time yesterday. I can honestly say they did a fantastic job. Very competitive rates. Polite, friendly staff and true to their word had my car ready when they said it would be. Would highly recommend these guys. Thank youMaureen Jones13/12/19
Best garage around. Not only diagnosed the issue quickly but fixed it within a few days and even fixed a few electrical problems free of charge. Other garages couldn’t find the issue and one garage nearly had me recon my dsg gearbox at a cost of 3k. Highly recommended don’t wast your time at other garages like I did.Phil smith13/12/19
Ryan and the team are professional and knowledgable, they provide great customer service and all the work is carried out to a high standard. They give honest advice and even suggest cheaper alternatives. Not a place that rips you off! I've been going there for years and never had a problem. ChetChet Patel09/12/19
