However, if routine car care has slipped your mind for quite some time, you might want to pay attention and watch for the following brake issues.

You know your Volvo S60 best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well.

When should you change the brake pads on your 2008 Volvo S60? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your S60. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Volvo S60 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your S60, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Volvo’s standards.
Your Volvo S60 may be powered by a strong engine. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs.
