Your Q5 Maintenance Schedule

The powerful and luxurious 2018 Audi Q5 is a true pleasure to drive, but it needs to be taken care of if you want to enjoy it for years to come. Here are the most important maintenance items you need to keep track of if you own the 2018 Audi Q5.

10,000 Miles

First at 10,000 miles or one year after delivery, and every 20,000 miles or two years after, it's time to evaluate the:

  • Brake system: Check for damage, leaks, pad thickness, brake fluid level, vent caps, and brake hoses
  • Engine oil: Change oil and replace filter
  • Engine compartment: Look for any leaks
  • Tires and spare wheels: Check for wear and tear, rotate tires, check and adjust tire pressure, and reset Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
  • Windshield washer and headlight washing system: Check fluids, add if necessary
  • Wiper blades: Check and replace if necessary

20,000 Miles

First at 20,000 miles or two years, and every 20,000 miles or two years after, have the following items completed:

  • Automatic transmission and final drive: Check for leaks
  • Battery: Look for corrosion
  • Cooling system: Check coolant level, add coolant if necessary
  • Drive shafts: Check boots
  • Dust and pollen filter: Replace
  • Exhaust system: Check for damage and leaks
  • Front lighting: Check parking lights, low beams, high beams, fog lights, blinkers, and hazard lights
  • Rear lighting: Check brake lights, tail lights, back-up lights, rear fog lights, and license-plate lights
  • Sunroof system: Check functionality

40,000 Miles

This is the time to check brake discs for thickness. Standard maintenance at this time also should include checking the battery, replacing the dust and pollen filter, looking at the exhaust system for leaks, and performing a road test, which includes checking the clutch, transmission, steering, wheels, and horn.

60,000 Miles

At 60,000 miles, clean the housing and replace the filter element of the air filter, and replace the belt for the compressor drive of the ribbed V-belt.

80,000 Miles

When you've reached 80,000 miles, examine the ribbed V-belt again, this time checking the condition of the entire belt. It should be replaced if necessary. Follow up with standard maintenance like checking front headlights, front and rear axles, and interior lights.
