Even With the Best Maintenance Your Audi Will Need Repairs


Here at Luxury Import Auto Repair Specialist, we realize that none of our Chesterfield clients want to have repairs done on their Audi. Repairs usually take time and cost hard earned money, however, it is an unfortunate fact of automobiles that they will all, eventually, need to have some repair work done. While we stress how important it is to have your Audi brought in for regular maintenance appointments, we wanted our Chesterfield Audi owners to be aware of some of the most common repair problems that plague Audis. So, in today’s post, that is exactly what we are going to do. Continue reading below to learn more.


Don’t Let Your Audi Suffer, Repair It


While Audi’s are usually the prized possession of their owner they, like all luxury vehicles, have some common issues that eventually crop up. Below, we have listed just a few of these common repair issues.



  • Ignition Coil: The single most common mechanical issue that plagues Audis, is the failure of the ignition coil and is often the root cause of most engine misfires. This issue is bound to crop up, considering the ignition coil deals with a lot of use, and, unfortunately, it cannot really be avoided. We here at Luxury Import Auto Repair Specialist suggest that all of our Chesterfield clients keep an eye on the health of their ignition coil. While it is not that expensive to replace, around $100 to $200, but it can lead to larger issues if ignored.
  • Oil Leaks: Oil leaks, while common in all vehicles, tend to happen in two places on Audi’s: the valve cover gasket and the camshaft tensioner. Both of these components are under a consistent amount of pressure and stress and, eventually, will fail. If you notice that your Audi is leaving behind small puddles of oil, we highly recommend that you come in and see us at Luxury Import Auto Repair Specialist. While an oil leak is easy to fix, the resulting damage of having too little oil in the engine can lead to costly repair costs.
  • Electrical Issues: Because of the densely packed and sophisticated nature of the circuitry present in every Audi, electrical issues are a common occurrence. This can be as simple as a few lights not working to as serious as your Audi not being able to start. Additionally, a fault in the electrical system can lead to faulty headlights or taillights which can cause you to get a ticket. Because this issue is so common it is usually covered under the vehicle’s warranty so don’t delay in bringing in your vehicle.
