Audi, Volkswagen's luxury division, is one of the top three luxury auto manufacturers in the world. The company name is derived from the surname of its founder, August Horch. Horch means “listen” in German, and Audi is the Latin word for listen. If you own an Audi, chances are you do because you connect with their brand vision and can feel in sync with the precision experience of driving an Audi. Just as Audi has listened to every minute detail and feedback to craft a truly incredible performance vehicle, it is important as an Audi owner that you listen to your vehicle as well!
Audis have very intricate and advanced electronic systems to notify you when anything out of the ordinary comes up on your vehicle. Listen to them! Schedule an appointment immediately with us at 623-776-6126 to service your Audi today before a warning turns into a bigger problem.
Maintain your cooling system! Audis can experience very costly cooling system repairs, especially in Arizona. Electrolysis due to degraded coolant from Arizona's extreme heat can cause the cooling system's metal components to degrade and fail; a situation that is completely avoidable by simply flushing your coolant every 3 years or 50,000 miles. Also, ONLY use the correct Audi coolant. Incorrect coolant in Audis can chemically react and form a sludge-like substance that restricts radiators and heater cores which will then need to be replaced.
Part of what makes an Audi so exhilarating to drive is the performance suspension set up present on every vehicle. The tradeoff is there are often quite a few more rubber mounts and bushings with their setups. This means these mounts and bushings can crack or tear completely and cause a loose feel, wobble, vibration, and / or tire wear. At Ultimate European, we always check the suspension system with every service.
