How do I know if one is due?

How often you service your car depends on how much use it gets. As a matter of safety, all vehicles need servicing every 12 months or 10,000 miles. 

For heavily used cars, we recommend an additional, major service every 36 months or 30,000 miles. This service assesses both the safety of your vehicle, as well as reviewing the condition of all components for optimal performance.  

If you’re unsure which service you need, call us to arrange a review.

Are you able to service my Volvo without it affecting the warranty?

Absolutely. In the past, drivers could only service their Volvo at a few select garages to maintain their warranty.

The good news is, recent changes in legislation enable you to choose the garage you think best, without affecting your warranty coverage.

What happens during a Volvo service?


Lighting & Visibility – The front, rear, and internal lights are rigorously checked for optimal performance. All windows, mirrors, and wipers are reviewed for chips, faults, and weak areas. Registration plates are cleaned and maintained for clarity and sturdiness.


Under Bonnet – A full under bonnet inspection ensures there are no leaks or faults, and all components are in working order. Where required, we replace the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, and drive belts.


Vehicle Interior – Seat belts are tested in line with safety standards. All internal controls are checked, such as the horn, hazard light button, and other vehicle controls for responsiveness and function. Using diagnostics, we complete full system analysis. This includes reviewing the air conditioning, making sure warning messages are addressed, and checking for intermittent and permanent faults flagged by the computer.


Steering, Drive & Suspension – Wheel alignment is analysed, and all joints, gaiters (protective sleeves on vehicle parts), and wheel bearings are extensively inspected for sturdiness and function. . The front and rear shock absorbers and road springs are tested to ensure the suspension functions effectively and maintains the right level of friction.


Braking – Both the front and rear brake mechanisms are checked and measured in line with safety requirements, allowing us to accurately report on their service life.


 Under Vehicle  – The trays under your car are removed and the engine oil is drained. The transmission is then checked for leaks, rust, and corrosion.


Tyre Inspection – All wheels and wheel nuts are inspected for sturdiness, weak points, and corrosion. Tyres reads are inspected for significant wear, and tyre pressures are adjusted prior to refitting. We also check your spare wheel and/or inflation kit if appropriate for your vehicle.


Final Checks – We assess the brake fluid and conduct an antifreeze test – crucial for road safety, especially during winter months. Finally, we fill your engine with new oil – this is vital for engine cleanliness and performance.
