Please add oil light on. Need advice

Got car at 32k factory warranty and CPO with recent oil change/service . Car now has 37k and add oil light just came on. I know Audis have a reputation for burning oil.

1) do I add oil asap. If so what kind?

2)do I call dealer service to ask them about it?

3)is this covered by dealer since it’s not at its 10k oil change yet?

Any other advice ?

Many dealers will give you a quik top off. I would ask.

Long term? You’ve got to start watching the oil level to establish the trend. 5,000 miles and consuming about one quart is not worthy of alarm.

OK, so this is not a panic situation. It’s basic oil maintenance.

First, double check the oil level. Park on level ground. Let it sit for maybe about ten minutes. Turn the car on, but don’t start it (foot off brake). There is no dipstick from the factory. Use the MMI to check the level.

The oil level will PROBABLY show its a quart low as was on your dash picture. That’s ok for now. If you’ve never looked at it before it’s possible it was somewhat low when you got it 5K miles ago. Ignore any comments that Audis are prone to any particular oil problem.

So you’ll need some oil. If it’s an S5 it requires 0W-20 Audi spec 508.00 oil. REQUIRES. Only quickly available from the Audi or VW dealer. You can’t get it at an auto parts store or Walmart.

if it’s an RS5 or A5 it will spec the 504.00 oil which mostly is 5W-40 but sometimes others. You can also substitute a quart of 502.00 oil such as Mobil 1 0W-40 European Formula which you can get anywhere.

As was mentioned above verify the oil spec by opening the hood and looking at the sticker.

Add the quart (or less if it not a full qt low). Recheck the MMI oil level. There is an extremely low probability the car has a problem, but start watching the level on a weekly basis to be sure.
