    S4 Cab servicing info

    Hi all,

    Thinking of trading in my A4 3.0 Cab for a S4 Cab 04 plate with 45K on the clock.

    Just wondering when the next major serivce would be (60K I think) and would this also need a cambelt change ?

    If so with the cambelt issue, I think I may give it a miss and wait for one to come along with less miles.

    By the way, any idea on servicing costs for the S4 ??

    Cheers all

    Vinny,

    The S4 has a timing chain so no cam belt to worry about.

    From what I can gather in the 6 weeks or so that I have had the car there are only two issues known:

    1 - Auxilliary Radiators (there are two, 1 behind each fog light) they leak - happened to mine now fixed under warranty
    2 - Timing chain rattle - requires replacement idel roller (I think) - not a big problem and only happens on the very early S4's apparently.

    Apart from that they are OK.

    As far as servicing is concerned here is a service schedule - hope this all helps

    S4teve,

    Thanks for all this info. Was hoping to part ex my A4 but the dealer is offering me peanuts for it !!!

    Going to try to sell it privately and then will indulge in the S4.

    Enjoy yours !!!
