Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2005 Volvo S40

Is the steering and suspension system in your Volvo S40 due for service yet?

Does Your 2005 Volvo S40 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2005 Volvo S40, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your S40 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2005 Volvo S40 in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Volvo S40’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Volvo S40 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2005 Volvo S40’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 limit vibration and keep your Volvo up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2005 Volvo S40’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Volvo S40 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your S40’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 S40 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volvo's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volvo S40? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Volvo intended.
  • When does Volvo S40 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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’ll follow Volvo service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
