2012 Volvo C30 Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Volvo? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Volvo? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your C30’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.

Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
