2011 Volvo C70 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2011 Volvo C70 suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2011 Volvo C70 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2011 Volvo C70, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your C70 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2011 Volvo C70 in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2011 Volvo C70’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your C70’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward 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. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 C70 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my C70's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volvo C70? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your C70 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Volvo's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
