Volvo S60 Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Volvo S60

Volvo S60 Problems

The automatic transmission may develop shifting problems and/or the Check Engine Light may illuminate due to internal component failure and/or software issues. It is always best to be sure the transmission control module has the latest software installed when any major transmission repair is performed.

It is not uncommon for the exterior light bulbs to burn out prematurely. No repair option has been reported other than replacing the failed bulb.

Front upper strut mounts may wear prematurely, resulting in loud noise from the front of the vehicle when going over bumps.

Volvo S60 Recalls

Certain vehicles equipped with 5-cylinder engine are being recalled because the driver may not be properly warmed of a low engine oil pressure condition. Without proper warning the driver could continue to operate the vehicle until it stalls due to engine failure. Dealers will update the vehicle's software so the driver is alerted should there be a low oil pressure situation.

A manufacturing defect within the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) control unit may lead to an inadvertent deployment of the seat belt pretensioner and/or inflatable curtain. If the seat belt pretensioner and/or inflatable side curtain deploy without cause, the driver could be distracted and the driver's visibility could be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash. These vehicles have not been sold and the SRS control unit will be replaced prior to the cars being sold. The Volvo recall number is 257.

The incorrect mixture and over application of the underbody coating can result in rigid, icicle-like areas hanging from the undercarriage. Over time, this rough surface can damage the fuel lines, resulting in a fuel leak and increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the undercarriage; if excessive coating is found in the fuel line area, it will be removed and damaged fuel lines will be replaced. The Volvo recall number is R251.
