If you own a Volvo, you understand that this is a vehicle that has a reputation for durability and reliability. At the same time, if you want your Volvo to run as long as possible, you must make sure that you take care of it. At Volvo Cars Mansfield, our goal is to not only help you find the right Volvo, but also to ensure you get as many years of use out of your vehicle as possible. There are several important steps you need to take to make sure your Volvo runs appropriately. Take a look at some of the most important tips regarding Volvo maintenance below.

1. Change the Oil and Rotate the Tires

First, you need to make sure that you change the oil and rotate the tires regularly. You need to change the oil in your Volvo because it will help you take care of the engine. Oil is responsible for reducing the friction among the internal components of your vehicle and for making sure your engine does not overheat. Changing the oil regularly can also help you improve your gas mileage.

You also need to make sure that you rotate your tires to ensure that they wear evenly. If you do not rotate the tires, your front tires may wear out faster than your rear ones, which can impact the fuel efficiency, gas mileage, and handling of your vehicle. We will work with you to make sure that you rotate your tires on time.

2. Get the Brakes Checked

Next, you must make sure that you get your brakes checked. From time to time, different components of your brakes might need to be adjusted or swapped out. If your brake fluid is low, we can top it off for you. If your brake pads have worn down, we can replace them for you. If your brake rotors have worn out, we can swap them out as well. We want to make sure that your brakes respond well when you need them the most. That way, you can prevent an accident from developing.

3. Keep an Eye on the Battery 

In addition, you need to keep an eye on your car's battery. You should expect to get between three and five years of use out of your car's battery. If you find that your electrical components are not functioning as well as they should be, this could be a sign that your battery is coming to the end of its life. We can take a close look at your battery and spark plugs to make sure they are functioning as they should. We can also test your battery to make sure it can still hold a charge. If it cannot do so, we will be happy to help you find a new battery for your car.

4. Monitor the Air Filters 

Finally, you must make sure that you take care of the air filters of your Volvo as well. There are several sets of air filters that play a significant role in your vehicle. You need to monitor the cabin air filters because they are responsible for making sure that you have clean air to breathe. If your cabin air filters are clogged, we can replace them for you. You also need to keep an eye on your engine air filters. They are responsible for making sure that your engine has a clean source of cool air. If your engine air filters are clogged, we can swap them out as well.
