What Every Audi Owner Must Know About An Audi Service
You will also get the Audi specialist service stamp on your service book and your digital service history. This will help maintain the resale value of your car besides making it easier to find a buyer. At a Volksmaster specialist garage, we provide anAudi service on a par with the main dealer, but at better rates.
Your Audi Needs Periodic Service
All cars need a periodic service due to the large number of interconnected systems, moving parts, mechanical, hydraulic and electrical systems. Everything has to work perfectly to ensure optimum performance, safety, comfort, fuel efficiency and reliability. This becomes even more important in premium cars like the Audi because their features and systems tend to be more sophisticated.
A service includes the replacement of worn out parts, top up of fluids like the engine oil and coolant, safety checks, engine tuning, software upgrades and a test drive. It ensures that all components are working well and your Audi is performing optimally.
Although periodic services have many things in common, not every service is the same. All car manufacturers specify a service schedule for every model. These schedules tell the time interval or kilometres between services, type of service, the checks that should be performed and parts that must be replaced.
Service schedules are carefully designed based on the manufacturer’s experience with the model, typical usage patterns, life of components, rate of wear and safety requirements. Without regular service, these essential activities will not be performed in time resulting in poor performance and a higher risk of breakdowns.
The dealer garage offers a good service, but it usually costs more without any additional benefits. You may also find it difficult to get an appointment when you need it. An Audi specialist garage like Volksmaster gives you the best combination of quality, competitive pricing and convenience.
You will get a dealer-equivalent premium service at reasonable rates. Being an Audi specialist has its advantages. We get technical updates and complete support from Audi. Our mechanics are friendly and will give you a more personalised service than the dealer. We cater to special requirements, address concerns and give you more convenient service options.
Service At The Dealer Is Not A Must
Since 2003, new EU regulations prevent manufacturers from insisting on a service with the main dealer garage. Your warranty will not become invalid just because you got your car serviced at a non-dealer garage. Apart from free services and warranty repairs, there is no need to go to the dealer. That said, using non-genuine parts or not adhering to the manufacturer’s service schedule will void your warranty. Even if your car is out of warranty, such a service is not a good idea because it may ruin the performance of your car or lead to other problems.
When you get your Audi serviced at Volksmaster, you don’t have to worry about your warranty. We use only company-provided spares during the warranty period. Post warranty, we leave the choice to you. You can opt for company supplied spares or equivalent OEM spares. OEM spares are cheaper and give high-quality performance.
The Advantages Of Using An Audi Specialist For Service
To offer quality service, a garage must have mechanics trained by the manufacturer, access to original spares, latest software, technical manuals, technical updates and the right equipment. Specialist garages like Volksmaster have access to all these resources and have a vast experience in servicing the entire Audi range. You will get great service that will also be updated in your service history.
With other garages, you can never be sure about the quality of service or the spares used. They may not have specialist mechanics, special equipment and manufacturer support. Very often, a service is limited to just an oil change and a general check. You can’t be sure about the quality of spares or consumables used. The service may not detect potential problems and may leave your car with outdated software. Over time, this may lead to inconvenient and expensive breakdowns.
