Questions About 2004 Volvo S60’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Volvo? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Volvo? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your S60 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my S60 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Volvo S60 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Volvo. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
