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.

These guys know their stuff. They previously diagnosed a tricky issue and on my DSG.This time diagnosed a misfire in the coilpacks. When you need a specialist, you won’t find better.Paolo17/10/20
I can not recommend Nathan @ Volksmaster van centre Oldham enough, bloody excellent service.
Excellent customer service, amazing knowledge, shares what he knows to help me understandable make an informed decision.
He understands that if my truck is off the road I am not earning so he fits my sporadic availability in to suit me not him.. this is so helpful.
If there were more stars they would get them..
I would advise anyone to completely dismiss VW Manchester van centre and go for Volksmaster, they are just better all round and totally honest with you unlike VW Manchester.Andy Carson05/10/20
First time I have used this garage it… First time I have used this garage it was recommended by a friend... excellent service very professional and knowledgeable mechanics v6 Touareg went in with injector seal leak was advised to replace all ... the mechanic showed me the old ones let’s say it was good advice as they were all ready to leak ... very happy with the garage indeednigel elliott26/09/20

Took my RS3 to Mike with a EML on worked out to be a timing issue which on a RS3 is a major job. Parts on back order for 2 weeks and Mike stored my car there so i didn’t cause any damage to the engine.. Got it back running perfect 100% recommend and won’t be taking my RS anywhere else.. Thanks Mike 👍🏽Mark Bolton18/07/20

My car had been back to VW Oldham twice and they couldn’t sort out the fault with my air con. Took it to Volks Master and they fixed it and it is working better than it ever has. Fab garage and really helpful staff. Highly recommendCaroline Schofield15/07/20
I've used Volksmaster for years. they are good mechanics, who explain what is wrong and what are the options. prices are reasonable (much cheaper than a dealer) and service is friendly.A Google User14/07/20
It was not easy to find a garage I could trust. To know what they are doing and be honest about what needs to be done. I know a fair amount about car mechanics, so Im not easily fooled and can identify a con-merchant. If the garage takes the time to fully explain what is wrong with your car and how they will fix it, and does not mind you asking questions, then its a fair sign that they can be trusted. I have been taking both my VW van and Golf there for almost 2 years. I am very happy with their work.Rula Safi03/07/20
Always a pleasure booking the car in highly recommend nathan and the lads do an amazing job the receptionist is lovely always willing to go the extra mile for there customers. I really wouldn't go anywhere else thanks again. Always on time very professionalJordan Clancy30/06/20

Volksmaster Bury My wife took her Lease car to Volksmaster at BURY. There were issues with communications between the Lease Company, my wife's company etc. but we were both impressed with the courteous and professional manner in which the 'guys' at Volksmaster operated and the willingness to provide and excellent customer service and get her car back to her as soon as possible. Well done to all and thank you. HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDJohn Griffin27/06/20

Absolutly fantastic service that has excelled in every area.I run a very busy car tyre and service centre and one of my services developed a problem while in our care. To cut a long story short our service light reset knocked out or reprogramed a module on the car causing all windows and horn to stop working. Ryan who answered my initial call and worked on the car was fantastic and really helped get the car sorted. Only dealer level diagnostics and reprogramming would sort this problem out and it was done without messing about. It was all done the same day. I am so happy to have chosen VolksMaster over the dealers as they were much cheaper and knew their stuff.Guy's and Girls thank you so much for today you really don't know how happy I am for what you have done.Many Thanks Paul...Paul Widall13/06/20
Excellent service and went above and beyond to help with warranty company. I will definitely recommend and will definitely use again.
I brought my Audi here, following a recommendation from an AA mechanic. I dealt with Mike, who was brilliant. Work was done extremely quick, very efficient and communicated well the whole way through. Also very helpfull in providing me with statements and documents to support my claim to the ombudsman after my warranty company refused to pay for the work.
Thanks guystobi oputa10/06/20
I would highly recommend this place. Very professional. Personally spoke with Mike who was really helpful and gave brilliant advice. He was very honest and genuinely helped us. They are very clean and thoroughly clean car after done which is essential with the current situation.
The service is impeccable, quality of the work is outstanding. I will definitely be going here for all future work.Saim Ghazanfar ali05/06/20
It’s very rare I write a review, but today the service received from Volksmaster was exceptional!
With the COVID-19 issue at the present time they have developed procedures for keeping distance when in the office and disinfecting all parts of the car they touch before the service and when finished.
As for the service, I am very pleased. Everything completed and they also highlighted issues from previous servicing.
As for the cost, I am deliriously happy. Never again will I have the hassle of dealing with an AUDI main dealer who charge the earth and do unnecessary work. (Bye Bye Main Dealers)Colin Buckley27/05/20
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
brought my Volkswagen passat here recently to get my boot fixed. great service, great price. didnt take to long to get the job done. thanks guys.Stephen James Rhodes25/04/20
Always friendly and helpful, really know their stuff.They will advise honestly and charge fairly.i would not use any other.Roy Clare13/03/20
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.

I always take my car to Volksmaster in Bury... Very good customer service and friendly staff.. I highly recommend Volksmaster to service and repair your car.. They offer a comparable if not better service than your local main dealer.. 5 Star and highly recommended ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️David Brennan02/03/20
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.
Thanks, RobRobert Ray28/02/20
