Regular Maintenance for your Volvo

Regular Maintenance for your Volvo

Brought to you by Volvo Cars Mall of Georgia

We here at Volvo Cars Mall of Georgia understand the investment you made in buying a new or pre-owned Volvo. Whether you plan on driving your Volvo into the foreseeable future or you plan on upgrading to a new Volvo after a couple of years, you should stay on top of your regular maintenance, so your Volvo stays in like-new condition year after year. Below we're going to go over the routine maintenance items you should never skip out on.

What are regular maintenance items?

Car Wash & Wax

When is the last time you washed your Volvo? If it's been over a month, you should definitely head on over to the car wash and make sure you opt for the option that provides an undercarriage wash. Why should you be washing your car every month, you ask? Well, your Volvo is constantly facing the elements, whether they be road debris, pollen, or bugs, and all of these items can do a number on your paint job over time. Regularly washing your car will not only help your paint job, but it will also help spare your beloved Volvo from rust. Having your vehicle waxed every six months will also help prevent rust and keep your paint looking sharp by forming a protective seal on your Volvo. 

Tire Pressure and Tread Depth

It is always a good idea to check on your tire pressure to make sure your tires aren't over or under-inflated. Changes in air temperatures can cause your tire pressure to go up or down, so it is always a good idea to keep an eye on your tire pressure whenever the temperature outside fluctuates. Improperly inflated tires can lead to your Volvo consuming more fuel, uneven tread wear, and more. Speaking of tread wear, when you check on your tire pressure, you should also check on the tread of your tires. You can easily see how your tread is doing by placing a penny with Abe's head face down in between your tire tread. If you can see his entire head, then you need to come on down and see us here at Volvo Cars Mall of Georgia for a new set of tires. If only part of his head is covered, you need to start thinking about investing in a new set of tires. 

Oil & Filter Change 

Oil changes are crucial to keeping your Volvo XC40, S60, or XC90 running in superior condition for years to come. The oil in your Volvo is used to lubricate the myriad of parts in your engine. When your oil gets old, it can no longer perform its task as it should, which causes friction in your engine, which, if left unchecked, can ruin your engine. Avoid costly engine repairs by staying on top of your oil changes and having them done at the mileage or month your service advisor here at Volvo Cars Mall of Georgia recommends. When you have an oil change completed with us, we will also change out your filter, so you always have a clean new filter to stop debris from entering your oil.
