2012 Volvo S60 T5: 15,000 Mile Maintenance

May 01, 2012

We recently took our S60 to Santa Monica Volvo for its 15,000-mile maintenance. The latter consists an oil and filter change, cabin filter replacement and the typical check of all the other vital (coolant, power steering and windshield washer) fluids. No tire rotation is indicated in the maintenance schedule but we opted for one anyway in the name of extended tire life, and that cost us $45.

We dropped the car off (as the dealer is just a mile away) and the service folks there were friendly, efficient and not pushy. They didn't try to upsell us some additional "we recommend..." services not indicated in the Volvo's maintenance guide. About an hour later we got a call that our S60 was ready and waiting for us.

Volvo has since, via a special promotion that ends July 2, extended its complimentary maintenance to 45,000 miles on new (leftover) 2011 and 2012 models and to 50,000 for 2013 models.
