Here’s Why 2004 Volvo S60 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Volvo S60 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper 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. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2004 Volvo S60!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Volvo themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your S60 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2004 Volvo S60 problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Volvo S60

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2004 Volvo S60 and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your S60. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 2004 Volvo S60 be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Volvo S60 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your S60 stranded. Your Volvo S60 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2004 Volvo S60 running newer, longer. See Volvo's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2004 S60 in the chart at the top of this page. 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 2004 Volvo S60.

Routine upkeep for your Volvo S60 suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Volvo S60 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. 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.

  • 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.

  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Volvo S60? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil.
