In addition to regular service it is important to do Volvo Scheduled Maintenance service. These scheduled maintenance services help to protect your investment and keep it in proper working order. Scheduled maintenance also helps to avoid damage that may not be covered by the warranty. These services are done at different mileage intervals whose description is given below. Along with scheduled maintenance we also offer other services to keep your vehicle running in factory condition. These services might be needed because of different driving conditions or habits which effect the wear and tear of a vehicle.

Brake Services
Brakes wear out over time requiring service. How long your brakes last is based on various things such as driving conditions, how you brake and other factors. For this reason, it is necessary to service your brakes regularly. We are familiar with the driving conditions here in Asheville and know that your brakes need care. We provide a visual inspection with almost every service to make sure that any problem is taken up before it becomes a major concern.
Brake Flush
Brake Fluid is hygroscopic. That means that this fluid will absorb water, sometimes right out of the air. As it absorbs the water it causes the boiling point of the fluid to go down and cause a loss of performance. Also old brake fluid or fluid that has absorbed water is also corrosive to the other parts of the brake system. This can lead to brake failure if not dealt with. This fluid is flushed in this service replacing the old fluid with the new.

The most common cause of breakdowns and internal engine damage is after or during a car overheats. Flushing the vehicles cooling system is another vital element of car maintenance. Your car's cooling system protects it from the extreme heat generated by the engine and keeps the engine itself operating within the proper temperature range. Flushing the system will keep it free of rust, buildup and contaminants preventing overheating and damage of engine vitals and components.

Safety Inspection
VA state requires a state safety inspection every year to ensure the vehicle is safe to drive on the road in everyday conditions. Being up to date and performing a safety inspection can keep you from getting a ticket.
Suspension ( shocks and sway bar)
Depending on driving conditions and habits suspension parts can wear and effect the feel and handling of a vehicle. Many components fall in to the suspension and it is important that they all work properly to insure the safety of your drive.
Transmission Flush
Transmission repairs can be some of the most expensive and time consuming. A preventive step is a transmission flush. Depending on manufacturer, a flush should be done every 30k miles. The key advantage of doing a flush rather than draining and replaceing the fluid is that it actually exchanges all of the fluid. Although it's important to drop the pan to periodically change the filter, you can only change about 1/4th of the fluid that way. Most of it stays in the torque converter and does not drain out.

Wheel Alignment
If your car pulls to a certain side or steers of to the side then a wheel alignment may be needed. A wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufactures specification. The purpose of these adjustments is to reduce tire wear, and to ensure that vehicle travel, is straight and true (without "pulling" to one side).
