Common Audi Repairs

We can fix these issues, and any others that you have, plus perform the regular maintenance that your car deserves!

  • This is usually due to a faulty valve cover gasket or camshaft tensioner, and is relatively simple to fix.

  • Owners have reported that the most common problems are failure of digital dashboard display or console, erratic lights and failed tailed lamps.

  • Failure of the ignition coil of an Audi is the single most common mechanical problem, but thankfully it’s also a relatively inexpensive fix. The ignition coil is the part of the ignition system responsible for generating the engine spark that ignites the engine’s air-fuel mixture. When this fails, that’s when the engine misfires and the check engine light comes on.

  • The catalytic converter is an emissions control device that creates a chemical reaction in which toxic gases and pollutants are “converted” to produce less harmful gases. They normally fail because they become so clogged that the exhaust gases can’t get through it to the muffler and out of the car.

  • Also known as EGR, this is primarily a system that lowers the temperatures in the combustion chamber. It’s also a nitrogen oxide emissions reduction technique that recirculates a portion of the exhaust gas back into the engine cylinders. You’ll know it’s malfunctioning when the check engine light comes on, it idles rough, and you notice decreased power and acceleration.

  • review rating 5  I wish I could give Milito’s 10 stars! My car had an emergency issue and had to be towed. I haven’t owned a car for many years and I had no idea where to have it towed in the city. My insurance company first connected me with a different mechanic, but when I called the person on the other end of the phone was rude, and told me that my car wouldn’t be a priority to them and said they’d “Get to it when they get to it”. Needless to say I hung up and started to search for a mechanic on my own. I came across Milito’s and saw their great reviews, so I gave them a call. Lupé answered the phone, and she couldn’t have been nicer. Having car problems is a stressful situation, Lupé understood that and was so sweet to me. She explained that they would likely be able to work on my car the next morning (it was already 3:30pm when I called) and that someone would call me before the worked on it. JJ called me the next morning before 9am - he and I spoke about my car; I also mentioned to him that I had an event in the afternoon and that I was hoping to have my car fixed by then. He said he would do everything he could to make that happen. By 11am JJ had already called back to tell me that he put 2 technicians on my car and they had been able to replace my cars broken part and I could come pick it up whenever I wanted! He also said they would clean up my car and make it look nice. Boy did they ever! When I walked up to Milito’s, I could see my car from a block away - As Riri said, it was “Shining bright like a diamond”. My car looked brand new. I can not recommend Milito’s enough!

Benefits of Getting Consistent Mechanical Check-Ups

Improved Reliability

If you don’t take good care of your vehicle, it won’t be there for you in the future.

While this means oil changes and tire rotations, it also entails having routine check-ups performed by expert Audi service center at Milito’s Auto Repair in Chicago.

Higher Resale Value

If you’re looking to sell your car at some point in the future, you’ll want to keep up with routine service and maintenance.

This will help to ensure that it continues to run in optimal condition. Selling it will not only be easier down the road, but much more profitable!

Better Fuel Economy

First, make sure your tire pressure is set to the right levels. This prevents your car from expending unnecessary energy and fuel while moving.

If your air filter is clogged or your fuel lines are leaking, your Audi’s fuel economy can be negatively affected by up to 25%.

How Audi Has Stood The Test Of Time

The Luxury of Sustainability

Along with BMW and Mercedes-Benz, Audi is one of the three best luxury automobile manufacturers in the world. They’ve navigated their way through two world wars, several recessions — including the great depression and the financial crisis of 2007 — as well as several mergers that could have taken down a lesser company.

Today, despite changing customer tastes and competition, the business has emerged stronger than ever. They are not only respectful of their customer and business partners, but also respectful of the environment through sustainable powertrain options and fully electric automobiles.

In 2017, they had a record-breaking year — increasing its global sales for the eighth year in a row, selling around 1,878,100 vehicles.

And they show no signs of slowing down.

What to Look for When Buying a Used Audi

If you’re looking for a luxury car but don’t want to pay for a brand new model, a used Audi is the way to go.

Here are five things that you should do:

  1. Check the Records – Check the serial number with your local Audi dealer for a service history. If they don’t have a history, make sure it has credible records from the owner. And always ask to see the receipts for repair work and scheduled maintenance.
  2. Professional Inspection – Even if you ran a vehicle history report, you should still have the car inspected by a mechanic to find potential issues and to determine if the car has been in an unreported accident. Make sure they pay attention to engine-related components, like fluids, hoses and belts, radiator, and the battery.
  3. Check the Tires – Tires can tell you a lot regarding the maintenance and driving history of the car. If tires are worn unevenly across the width of the tread, this could indicated aggressive driving by the previous owner of the vehicle. Also look at the surface of the tire for feathering (bad alignment). Bad alignment can be caused by worn steering/suspension components, the Chicago potholes, or frame damage.
  4. Certified Pre-Owned – The certification provides a long-term warranty which is only offered after a rigorous 300-point test fully resolving any visual or technical flaws. The Audi Certified pre-owned Limited Warranty is easily transferable to a subsequent private owner.
  5. Test Drive – You’re judging your comfort level with the car. Do the power windows all work? Are the mirrors easily adjustable? In addition, take a moment to park in a clean area on the road, and let the car run for at least 30 seconds. After which move the car and do a visible check for any leaking substances, which is a red flag.

The History of Audi

To find out when this automotive giant first came on the scene, you have to go all the way back to 1889 when August Horch — a former production manager for Karl Benz — decided he wanted to make cars with is own name.

In 1899 he joined up with 15 others and started a company in Germany that produced its first vehicle in 1901. But it wasn’t a smooth ride at all. In 1909, the Board of Directors forced Horch out of the company that he had been first and foremost in creating.

Not deterred, he set up another business. Given that the name Horch was already in use, he chose Audi – Latin for ‘Hear’ or ‘Listen.’

Audi as we now know it launched their first car in 1910 — the Audi Type A Sport-Phaeton, with only 140 ever produced. It was a success, particularly in sporting events, and the Type B was also launched that year. Horch began entering his vehicles in races and won the prestigious International Austrian Alpine Run three years in a row.

The company quickly became a favorite of German drivers, but the First World War required the company to manufacture vehicles used in many military campaigns. When the war was over, the company incurred heavy losses and struggled to remain profitable, much less at the level they were performing before the war.
