Here’s Why 2011 Volvo S60 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

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. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your S60, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2011 Volvo S60 maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Volvo, your vehicle manufacturer. 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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your S60 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2011 Volvo S60 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Volvo S60

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2011 Volvo S60 and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your S60’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2011 Volvo S60. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to 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 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2011 Volvo S60 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2011 S60. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2011 Volvo S60.

Maintaining your Volvo S60 steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Volvo S60 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. 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.

If you skip recommended Volvo S60 services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Volvo S60 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.
