When to Service Your Volvo Hybrid Model

Your owner's manual can outline the specifics regarding what kind of care your hybrid vehicle needs and when. Keeping up with these service intervals here at our service center near Golden Valley can help to keep your vehicle running smoothly so that it can last longer and perform more efficiently. Some of the most common recurring maintenance items that you'll notice include:

  • Tire rotations
  • Oil changes

  • Filter changes
  • And other basic service items

Most vehicles benefit from some basic service and a checkup every six months or so to make sure that everything is working as it should. Our experts can tend to your car's needs and ensure that all its parts and systems, including those critical to its hybrid technology, are operating at full capacity. Our team specializes in the Volvo lineup, which includes several hybrid models, making us well-suited for tackling your hybrid vehicle's service needs.

When to Get an Oil Change

Hybrid models need oil changes, just like any other gas-powered vehicle. Most vehicles need an oil change every 5,000 miles or so to keep everything running smoothly. Why are regular oil changes necessary? Oil keeps your engine lubricated, but it breaks down over time. Changing your oil regularly keeps your engine parts clean and reduces wear and tear, allowing your engine to last longer and perform better.

So, if you're looking to get the most out of the engine that powers your hybrid vehicle, keeping up with oil changes is one of the best things you can do to get more out of your vehicle.

When to Get a Tire Rotation

We often recommend that drivers get tire rotations and oil changes at the same time here at our Volvo service center near St. Paul and Minnetonka. Rotating your tires every six months or so helps them wear out evenly, which helps them last longer. It also improves efficiency and handling, so there is a lot to gain from staying on top of tire rotations.

The process of rotating your tires involves removing the tires from your vehicle and putting them back on in different positions, such as swapping the front tires and rear tires. This promotes even tire wear by changing the pressure points caused by factors like steering and weight distribution.
