Volvo has long been at the forefront of safety research, introducing the first three-point seat belt, as well as padded dashboards, front and rear energy-resistant crumple zones, childproof locks, collapsible steering columns, and rear-facing child seats. Today, Volvo vehicles also offer generous amounts of style and performance. If your Volvo needs repairs, we can help you return to the road with your vehicles performance and safety intact.
At Downtown Garage, we know Volvo vehicles just as well as the Volvo dealerships. Our technicians stay up-to-date on the latest Volvo technology and features to ensure we can take care of your vehicle whether you need an oil change or engine replacement. If you live in the Charlevoix area, we hope you’ll count on us to keep your Volvo performing at its best.
If any warning lights display on your Volvo vehicle, you should head to an auto repair shop as soon as possible (at a minimum within the next 600 miles). Generally, your motor oil and filter must be changed at least once a year, and this may be the culprit. However, if you’re driving in optimal conditions, your vehicle might not indicate the need for vehicle service for more than a year. At Downtown Garage, our trained technicians can accurately determine when your Volvo needs maintenance, exactly when and not before or after it’s necessary.
The brake pads on your Volvo vehicle are equipped with wear indicators that will produce a squealing noise when the brakes are almost worn out. The noise will start when there is about 2 mm of brake pad friction remaining, which is when brake pads need to be replaced. If you are hearing this noise, your brake pads should be replaced as soon as possible. (The noise may be present even when you’re not applying the brake pedal.) At Downtown Garage, we can help with all your Volvo service needs.
