2010 Volvo S40 Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Volvo S40’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 2010 Volvo S40 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2010 Volvo S40, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your S40 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2010 Volvo S40, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your S40 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Volvo S40 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Volvo S40

Your 2010 Volvo S40’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2010 Volvo S40’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Volvo S40 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2010 Volvo S40’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2010 S40 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volvo's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Volvo S40 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 connect with the road how Volvo intended.
  • Does my Volvo S40 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your S40 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Volvo's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
