Here’s Why 2012 Volvo S60 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Volvo S60 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your S60. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine S60 maintenance. Just follow your 2012 Volvo S60 maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Volvo themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your S60 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2012 Volvo S60 problems.

Overview of Essential Volvo S60 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2012 Volvo S60 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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. 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.

Could your 2012 Volvo S60 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2012 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 2012 S60. 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2012 Volvo S60.

Routine upkeep for your Volvo S60 suspension and steering 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! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Volvo S60 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Volvo S60's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Volvo S60 maintenance, 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!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Volvo S60’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Volvo S60? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2012 Volvo S60 maintenance.

  • 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.

  • Can Volvo dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Volvo S60 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
