How to Maintain Your Volvo

How to Maintain Your Volvo

The following article is aimed at helping Volvo owners keep their vehicles well-maintained for a long time. Volvos are without a doubt well-built Swedish machines, but like all other vehicles they need to be maintained properly in order to last as long as you want them to.

Let us start off by saying why you should get regular oil changes. Changing the oil and filters ensures that your car runs smoothly and at its best. Furthermore, it can be a good way of making sure that no turbo issues occur, which as some of you know are not cheap to repair.

Rotating tires every, let us say, 5000 miles, is a way of keeping the wear even and maintaining the mileage. As long as we are on the subject of tires, we should add that it is a good idea to keep track of their air pressure and keep the wheels in proper alignment.

Last but not least, check your coolant as regularly as you can. It is of the highest importance to do that because it could be dangerous for your radiator and engine when you don’t. If you want to be completely thorough in the maintenance of your vehicle, have the coolant flushed and refilled every year or at least every other year.

When following these simple pieces of advice, and having your Volvo serviced regularly, you will surely have an excellent-running vehicle that lasts a long time.

The rise of the automotive industry in Kansas City
Kansas City is officially the nation's second-largest auto hub. City’s long history of auto production dates back to 1913 when Henry Ford made a decision to choose this region to be the first one outside of Detroit for auto production. The most recent expansion of Ford Motor Co. in this particular area was in 2011. At that time, the company announced a $1.2 billion investment that was meant to expand and retool Kansas City Assembly Plant, which is located in Claycomo. This plant is responsible for manufacturing the Transit and the F-150 full-size van.
