You want your Volvo S60 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your S60 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your S60, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2002 Volvo S60!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Volvo, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Volvo S60 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2002 Volvo S60 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your S60's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2002 Volvo S60? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Volvo S60 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your S60 stranded. Your Volvo S60 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2002 Volvo S60 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2002 S60. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2002 Volvo S60.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Volvo S60 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Volvo S60 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Volvo S60's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Volvo S60 maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Volvo S60 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Volvo S60? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2002 Volvo S60 maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Volvo S60? You know your Volvo S60 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Volvo S60? If your Volvo S60 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Volvo dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Volvo S60 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
