Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2017 Volvo S60 Cross Country

Not sure when or if your Volvo S60 Cross Country’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2017 Volvo S60 Cross Country Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2017 Volvo S60 Cross Country, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your S60 Cross Country bounces, drifts 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 2017 Volvo S60 Cross Country in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 S60 Cross Country steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Volvo S60 Cross Country

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2017 Volvo S60 Cross Country’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your S60 Cross Country’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Volvo S60 Cross Country shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2017 Volvo S60 Cross Country suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2017 S60 Cross Country Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volvo's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Volvo S60 Cross Country get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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.
  • When should I have my Volvo S60 Cross Country power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your S60 Cross Country is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Volvo service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
