Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2009 Volvo S60 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. 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 2009 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).

Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Volvo S60 battery, and so can frequent short drives.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty S60) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Volvo S60 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
