If you’re looking for an independent VW or Audi service specialist in Kirkland, Redmond, Bellevue, Woodinville, Bothell or Kenmore, Buttera Motors is here for you. We’re a family-owned and operated auto repair shop in Kirkland, specializing in Audi and VW repair and maintenance since 1952. We’re committed to excellence in customer service and quality of work, which is why we’ve earned our title as a Bosch Authorized service center. Here are a few of our VW and Audi services:
VW/Audi Scheduled Maintenance
These German auto manufacturers recommend specific servicing every 20,000 miles to maintain your fine car of SUV. Changing engine oil and filter, rotating tires, changing engine air filter and pollen filters are the main ones, and diesel vehicles need the fuel filter replaced.
40, 80, 120K VW & Audi Service
Both VW and Audi recommend more in-depth scheduled maintenance at 40,000 mile intervals, including replacement of spark plugs, fuel filter, air filter, pollen filter, engine oil, engine coolant and hydraulic brake fluid. Buttera also includes a comprehensive safety inspection and tire rotation performed by technicians who specialize in VW and Audi and can catch a small problem before it turns into a major issue.
Brake hydraulic system flush
Brake fluid is subject to extreme temperature variations and can absorb moisture and contaminates from the air. It’s very important to maintain this often neglected component of the braking system to ensure long brake system life and safe driving conditions. Brake fluid flushing is also recommended every two years regardless of mileage.
Cooling system flush
Engine coolant not only keeps your engine operating within safe operating temperatures, but is critical to the lubrication of cooling system components such as water pump and thermostat. Coolant breaks down over time, so flushing at recommended intervals is very important.
Fuel injector system flush
Today’s average stop-and-go driving conditions cause build-up of excessive carbon deposits on fuel injectors and valves, and in the combustion chamber. This can cause poor fuel economy, rough running, and in some cases hard start conditions. Maintaining your fuel system can prevent costly repairs to fuel injectors and cylinder heads.
Air conditioning service
There’s nothing worse than discovering on the first hot day of summer that your A/C doesn’t work. Proper air conditioning system maintenance ensures smooth operation even on the hottest days, and assures proper lubrication of the compressor and good condition of all seals.
Most Volkswagen and Audi engines are equipped with a timing belt that should be replaced every 60,000 to 100,000 miles, depending on driving conditions. This is very important, because slippage or breakage of the belt can result in very costly engine damage and repairs, not to mention leaving you stranded on the side of the road.
Transmission service is often overlooked, as most vehicles don’t have a specific interval for this transmission maintenance. While new ‘sealed’ transmissions are designed to be maintenance-free, they do experience wear, fluid does degrade, and contaminates do get inside. Maintaining your transmission fluid and filter will ensure longer life and a more reliable transmission operation.
