Service checklist: what's included in each type?

When you book an Audi service through Smart Care, the types of checks that are included vary depending on the type of service you book.

Manufacturer service

If you book a manufacturer service, we'll carry out the checks specified in the Audi service schedule, according to the age, model and mileage of your vehicle. This will ensure that if your Audi is still within the warranty period, the warranty will remain valid.

If you're unsure whether your vehicle is still under warranty, you can usually find out on the manufacturer's website.

Interim or full service

If you choose not to have a manufacturer service, you can instead opt for our interim or full service options. We've listed what's included in each one, so you can decide which is right for you.

Why should I get my Audi serviced?

Servicing your Audi at regular intervals will improve performance and reduce the likelihood of a breakdown. Unlike an MOT, a service provides an in-depth check of your vehicle and also replaces components that increase the life of your vehicle’s engine, such as the oil, oil filter, air filter and pollen filter.

While an MOT is compulsory, the test only shows that your car has met the minimum legal requirements of roadworthiness on that specific day. A service not only identifies parts that are already worn, but also those that will need replacing soon, so you can fix any problems before they turn into something more serious.

How often should I get my Audi serviced?

For most Audis, we recommend getting a full service every two years and then an interim service in the alternate years. However, there are some exceptions to this guidance, for example, if your vehicle:

  • Is still within the warranty period and needs to be serviced at specified intervals for the warranty to remain valid
  • Is currently experiencing any problems.
  • Displays any warnings advising you that repair or maintenance is needed.
  • Covers considerably more or fewer miles than average.

Can I take my Audi to a local independent garage?

Yes. Under EU Block Exemption Regulation retained in UK law, you can get your Audi serviced at a local independent garage, even if you’re still under warranty. So, you can choose any garage in our AA approved network and you’ll still be covered.

Should I have genuine Audi parts used?

We use original equipment (OE) equivalent parts, which are fully guaranteed and manufactured in line with manufacturer specifications, so if you’re still within warranty period, you can be sure you’ll still be covered.
