Amongst the oldest automobile manufacturing companies in Germany, Audi boasts of a fascinating history and legacy that sets it apart as a leader in world auto manufacturing. For all the car connoisseurs, it has always been one of the most desirable possessions and special care is taken when it comes toAudi’s repair and maintenance by all its proud owners. Here is a hands-on guide that enables you to take care of your Audi and maintain its value for a long time to come.
Exterior care: While washing you Audi, make sure that you are using appropriate car care products that uphold its corrosion or car paint warranty. Substances like road tar, bird droppings, soot and tree sap should not remain on your car for long as they can damage the car paint. Prior to giving your car for automatic car wash, make sure the sunroof and all the windows are properly closed. When washing by hand, make sure to use plenty of water, glove, a soft sponge and a brush.
Waxing and polishing:You know it is time to get the wax job done when water drops have stopped forming droplets and rolling down the paintwork of your Audi. It should be one at least two times in a year, and can be done during the regular Audi repair and service or can be attempted by you at home. Polishing helps in getting back the shine of your car’s paint and should be done only when the wax fails to get back its gloss.
Window care:Windows are made of glass and hence require special care when it comes to cleaning them. Never use wax, insect remover, as well as cloths used for polishing and waxing on the windscreen. Either use plain water or a window cleaning solution for tough stains.
Interior care: The sound system and control console of your Audi should be cleaned with the help of a soft cloth and “LCD cleaner”. All the plastic parts can be cleaned with a damp cloth whereas textile covers require cleaning by a vacuum cleaner. For removal of tough stains like that of food, juice or coffee, a mild detergent paste can be used.
Natural leather:All the Audi vehicles come furnished with a special kind of leather called ‘Nappa’ which comes with no protective coating and hence is more prone to damage. Leather in cars need to be regularly cleaned and then coated with a suitable cream to soften the leather. Ink, shoe polish and lipstick stains need to be immediately removed!
Engine care: Always get your car’s oil changed by your expert technician and on exact time interval as prescribed by the company. Go through the owner’s manual to get the right oil specifications. Similarly, keep a regular check on your car’s coolant as it not does keep the car’s engine from heating but also has anti-freezing additives.
This guide can prove to be really handy for all owners of this leading luxury brand in the world of automobiles. So, if you love your Audi, follow the simple suggestions in this guide and get the best out of it!
