How often should I change my air filters on my Audi or Volkswagen?

Changing the air filters in your Audi or Volkswagen is simple yet an important maintenance item that should be done every 20,000 miles.

Why should I change the air filter on my Audi or VW?

Audi and VW engines require a precise mixture of air and fuel ratios to run properly. The NH and New England climates are very extreme compared to other parts of the country. We have a lot of dirt, dust, and pollen year-round. These particles become trapped inside your filters which cause small blockages.

Over time these blockages can become severe. Small critters such as mice love to make their homes where these filters reside. Take a look at our video to see what a nice mouse home looks like in an Audi A4 engine air filter box.

Changing your engine air filter every 20k miles will ensure that your engine is running properly and you are getting optimal fuel economy. The cabin air filter should also be changed every 20k miles. This is the filter that filters the air that you breathe in your car. Have allergies? When was the last time your filters were changed?
