Volvo maintenance

Volvo advises you to follow the maintenance program outlined in the Warranty and Service Records Information booklet. This maintenance program contains inspections and services necessary for the proper function of your vehicle. The maintenance services contain several checks that require special tools and training, and therefore must be performed by a qualified technician.

To keep your Volvo in top condition, specify time-tested and proven Genuine Volvo Parts and Accessories.

The Federal Clean Air Act – U.S

The Federal Clean Air Act requires vehicle manufacturers to furnish written instructions to the ultimate purchaser to assure the proper servicing and function of the components that control emissions. These services, which are listed in the Warranty and Service Records Information booklet, are not covered by the warranty. You will be required to pay for labor and material used.


Your Volvo passed several major inspections before it was delivered to you, in accordance with Volvo specifications. The maintenance procedures outlined in the Warranty and Service Records Information booklet, many of which will positively affect your vehicle’s emissions, should be performed as indicated. It is recommended that receipts for vehicle emission maintenance be retained in case questions arise concerning maintenance.

Inspection and maintenance should also be performed anytime a malfunction is observed or suspected.

Applicable warranties – U.S/Canada

In accordance with applicable U.S. and Canadian regulations, the following list of warranties is provided.

New Vehicle Limited Warranty

Parts and Accessories Limited Warranty

Corrosion Protection Limited Warranty

Seat Belt and Supplemental Restraint Systems Limited Warranty

Emission Design and Defect Warranty

Emission Performance Warranty

These are the federal warranties; other warranties are provided as required by state/provincial law. Refer to your separate Warranty and Service Records Information booklet for detailed information concerning each of the warranties.

Periodic maintenance helps minimize emissions

Periodic maintenance will help keep your vehicle running well. Your Warranty and Service Records Information booklet provides a comprehensive periodic maintenance schedule up to 150,000 miles (240,000 km) of vehicle maintenance. The schedule includes components that affect vehicle emissions.

This page describes some of the emission-related components.

Vehicle Event Data (Black Box)

Your vehicle’s driving and safety systems employ computers that monitor, and share with each other, information about your vehicle’s operation. One or more of these computers may store what they monitor, either during normal vehicle operation or in a crash or near-crash event. Stored information may be read and used by:

Volvo Car Corporation

service and repair facilities

law enforcement or government agencies

others who may assert a legal right to know, or who obtain your consent to know such information.

Maintaining your car

Owner maintenance

Periodic maintenance requirements and intervals are described in your vehicle’s Warranty and Service Records Information booklet.

The following points can be carried out between the normally scheduled maintenance services.

Each time the vehicle is refueled:

Check the engine oil level

Clean the windshield, windshield wipers, headlights, and tail lights


Check cold tire pressure in all tires. Inspect the tires for wear.

Check that engine coolant and other fluid levels are between the indicated min and max markings.

Clean interior glass surfaces with a glass cleaner and soft paper towels.

Wipe driver information displays with a soft cloth.

Visually inspect battery terminals for corrosion. Corrosion may indicate a loose terminal connector, or a battery near the end of its useful service life. Consult your Volvo retailer for additional information.

As needed:

Wash the car, including the undercarriage, to reduce wear that can be caused by a buildup of dirt, and corrosion that can be caused by salt residues.

Clean leaves and twigs from air intake vents at the base of the windshield, and from other places where they may collect.
