Volvo owners, there is so little info on maintenance costs of Volvo cars, anything you can contribute will be much appreciates. I just realised that when it comes to owning aspirational brands, maintenance costs hold the key..

I have not spent more than 20000/- ever during the past 3 years for the Engine Oil Change and couple of filters (Oil/Air) apart from the Continental Tyres (Made in Germany/Portugal) (Set of 4 & 70-80K) as I change them every 20,000 Kms due to my driving style. If you have Panoramic Sunroof version, Make sure once in every while, while servicing, ask the mechanic to check the clogged water pipes around sunroof if you park your vehicle under trees often.
Mine got clogged and the water dripped in the cabin via sunroof console only to shot-circuit something in sunroof operating console and the entire unit had to be imported from Poland to get the sunroof open up again.

I just completed my first service for my 2014 XC60 D5 and it had cost me Rs. 11,000 approximately. I found this to be quite reasonable.

Reasonable? That is an understatement . I just completed the 20,000 Km servicing of my Ertiga ZDI and it cost me close Rs. 9,600 including some highly suspect replacements.

My nascent plans for a pre-owned Volvo is firming up nicely to a conviction.
