Volvo Maintenance & Repair FAQ

You Have Service Questions, We've Got Answers

Here in Hudson County our Hasbrouck Heights customers know that we can provide a large stock of luxury cars and SUVs from Volvo. What you may not know is that we also provide a high level of care that you need to ensure your vehicle can last as long as it's meant to last. Whether you travel with kids in your Volvo XC40, XC60, or XC90, or you hit the road solo, it's important to keep your vehicle in top shape.

The health of your Volvo S60 shouldn't be left to chance when bringing it to an independent shop, especially since our team has the training to repair and maintain your vehicle. We weren't trained to work on just any car -- we were trained to work on your car. The difference is notable, and it's important to have a team in your corner who you can trust and rely on for answers to your most pressing questions.

Learn Everything You Need to Know: Your Service FAQs Answered

When you want to know what's going on with your car in Jersey City, have no fear, because our team is ready to help. Our service center can give you answers to your most pressing questions, but before you visit us from Clifton, you can learn a few of our FAQs right here. We encourage you to set up your appointment to determine the true nature of your issue, but this is always helpful.

How often do I need to change my battery?

If your vehicle is displaying strange electrical behavior, such as dimming lights when the air conditioning is on, then you should schedule an appointment to ensure that your battery doesn't catch you off guard. A typical battery has a lifespan of three years, and most drivers forget to keep track of when their car had a replacement. Knowing can be empowering, so be sure to have it checked out.

When do I need an oil change?

An oil change can vary from one model to the next, and your owner's manual can give you a definitive number. Oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle, and it provides lubrication between the moving parts and ensures there's no friction. As oil ages, it loses its ability to stretch and could cause damage to the engine. Rather than risk a costly repair due to skipping an oil change, take the time to come in for one today.

Are my brakes in need of attention?

Do you experience shuddering when applying the brakes when traveling over 50 mph? Does the brake pedal feel spongey or slow to respond? Have you noticed a squealing or grinding noise when the brakes are applied? These are all good indicators that your brakes are up to no good. Having failing brakes is a safety concern for everyone on the road with you in Hoboken, and having them serviced is easy with our help.

Why should I service my car at the dealership?

When you bring your Volvo car or SUV to us, you're getting the highest level of care possible because our team was trained to work on your exact vehicle. We can diagnose your problem and provide your vehicle with OEM-approved parts that offer the best fit each time. Taking the time to visit us from Glen Ridge means you're getting expert care every time.

What makes Volvo-approved parts so special?

The parts that we use here at our dealership are given the stamp of approval by the brand that makes your vehicle. When you use aftermarket parts on your car, you're risking your vehicle's health. Not all parts are designed to work on your car, and since Volvo is a luxury brand, you know that the parts are not a one size fits all situation. These products were designed to work in your specific model and can withstand the performance specs of that engine.

Do my tires need to be changed?

Your tires help you stay on the road by providing traction, even in snow and rain. Depending on the season, your Volvo car or SUV requires specific tires. Snow tires are better suited for traveling on slippery surfaces, while summer tires, or all-season tires, are great for rain and dry weather, and having the best tires for the season is the safest. When you bring your car to us for a tire replacement, we'll also handle your alignment to ensure you're good to go for any adventures that call your name.

How do I know I need an alignment?

Typically an alignment is done with each tire changeover, but sometimes, you hit a curb or pothole, and it affects more than your tires. The alignment will warn you that something isn't right by veering to one side when you press on the gas pedal or let go of the wheel when the car is in motion (we don't recommend doing this at high speeds or with other cars or people around). Our team can check your alignment for you and fix it so you can get back to your life.

We know that you have more questions, and the best way to get answers is to set up an appointment with our service center. While you're here visiting from Secaucus, take advantage of our parts specials for all your future needs. Getting tires and wipers at a lower price can be helpful, and these deals frequently change to accommodate your needs. We can also help you save money on service.
