2002 Volvo C70 Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2002 Volvo C70 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2002 Volvo C70 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2002 Volvo C70, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your C70 bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2002 Volvo C70, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your C70 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Volvo C70 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Volvo C70 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2002 Volvo C70 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Volvo up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2002 Volvo C70’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Volvo C70 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your C70’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 C70 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volvo's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Volvo C70? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Volvo intended.
  • Does my Volvo C70 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Volvo's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
