Volvo Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Not evey place does the same thing with a 60,000 mile service, so prices may vary. You'll need to compare what services are included. The services that are due are changing the oil and oil filter, rotating the tires, changing the cabin air filter and replacing the engine spark plugs. Some places recommend the serpentine belt and fuel filter with the 60k even though they are not due until 105,000 miles
Some places will also recommend flushing the brake fluid and coolant. You would probably come out cheaper just taking it in to have the oil changed, cabin filter changed and spark plugs changed. Have them check the tires to see if they need to be rotated and check the coolant and brake fluid as well
An oil change will run $35-$50, cabin filter $85-$115, spark plugs $200-$230
These are dealer prices with OEM parts
this does me no good; why should service vary when the volvo owners service schedule is very specific
Unfortunately, thats how it is. Services have varied over the course of time. So while spark plugs were due at 30,000 miles on the 850, they are due at 60,000 on 2004+ models and now 75,000 on some. Dealerships want to have set pricing across the board so it isn't always accurate
You can go to the dealership and pay $500+ for a 60k service, but really you'd be better off doing the oil change, spark plugs, cabin filter for less and having them check the rest and tell you what it needs.
