Your Guide to 2006 Volvo S60 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Volvo S60, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your S60. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine S60 maintenance. Just follow your 2006 Volvo S60 maintenance schedule!

Volvo knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your S60's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2006 Volvo S60 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Volvo S60 Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2006 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. 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 2006 Volvo S60? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your S60 may need a replacement battery sooner. 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty S60) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Volvo S60 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2006 Volvo S60's engine run smoother. To learn how often Volvo recommends you have the oil changed in your 2006 S60, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2006 Volvo S60.

Routine upkeep for your Volvo S60 suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

Questions About 2006 Volvo S60 Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2006 Volvo S60. Get answers to common Volvo S60 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • 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 does my Volvo S60 need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Volvo S60 engines.
  • 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.
