Audi A4 is the bestselling Audi model in the United State. Recent vehicles show few problems, but some of the older ones can leave you with a large repair bill.

Older A4 vehicles burn engine oil at an accelerated rate. This problem seems to affect mostly A4 made between 2007 and 2015. Even though vehicles do not suffer from oil leaks, some vehicles require a quart of oil as often as every 500-700 miles driven.

If you own Audi A4 we highly recommend regular engine oil level check, even between oil services. Naturally you can bring your A4 to us for the regular oil service, but given how fast some vehicles burn oil, it’s safer to also do an oil level check at home every 1000 miles driven.

Running out of engine oil will cause severe engine damage, and likely necessitate engine replacement.

Naturally, at German Auto Sport, Berkeley’s “Everything German” auto repair shop we are happy to help with Audi A4 maintenance services and repairs – we provide a full range of diagnostics and repairs your A4 may require.
