2012 Volvo S60 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2012 Volvo S60

Your S60 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Volvo, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 2012 Volvo S60 to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Volvo's recommendations.

When to Get Volvo S60 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2012 Volvo S60 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your S60 might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Volvo S60 doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2012 Volvo S60? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
