Volvo XC60 Reliability

I know XC 60 has 5 year maintenance plan. Does anyone knows how is it to maintain after 50 k miles . Consumer reports rated XC60 as average reliability ..

    We only have 30k on ours right now and have had only one mx issue...bad wheel bearing. I wouldn't think too many folks have over 50k miles on theirs yet.

    Since ours is a 2010, it has 60k mile coverage for the Safe and Secure Plan.
  • You guys are killin' me with this 60K S&S plan on a 2010. Ours was covered for 'only' 36K miles.

    We drove past 50K back in March and I'll be PAYING for my 52.5K service in the next week or so. We haven't had any serious issues other than a completely dead battery that made us think we had been hit by a EMF..couldn't even remove the 'key' from the slot! Nice to get a free fresh battery at the third anniversary.

    I guess the extended S&S plan would cover the center grill VOLVO sticker that peeled off our vehicle recently...I'll see how accommodating our dealer is when I go in for the 52.5K check. :shades: (Unfortunately, our 'sticker' on the '11 C70 doesn't seem all that secure, either)

    HEARD ON SWEDESPEED YOU CAN GET NEW LABELS from DAVE'S volvo labels that will fit just fine.. ;)

    And the labesl only cost $5.00 generally.. They even have a label for the Steering wheel blue that sometimes falls off (now). Have not had any problems with our 55k miles now XC60.. Just keep the oil changed with Mobil 1 Synthetic (we have T6 model) every 7500, rotate tires and put air and oil filters in it..

  • I’ve heard from a friend that had a 2009 & 2014 XC60. He had great luck with his 2009, put 80,000 miles on it and traded it in for a 2014 Inscription XC60. He had some minor electrical issues under warranty that were fixed but with some unhappy visits to the Volvo dealer. About 4 months ago and after several out of warranty issues, (61,000miles), on this vehicle, he had enough and got rid of this vehicle for a Lexus RX350 XL.

    He knew that we were looking at a new vehicle and warned us to only to Lease an XC60 for no more than 36 months and 12,000 miles per year. At least I would be protected under warranty in that case. We told me, do not purchase to own this vehicle!

    I’m curious if this is a typical outcome on what should be an excellent vehicle with an excellent mechanical longevity as well. Please share your stories and issues if you’ve had good or bad experiences. Thanks in advance!
