​You might think that when a brand offers a capped price servicing plan, you, as the customer, will get a good deal when it comes to maintenance costs. That’s not necessarily the case for Volvo Cars Australia.

In short, Volvo has one of the most expensive service setups in the Australian market, capped pricing or no.

The company offers two levels of capped price service plans, SmartCare and SmartCare Plus, the latter of which includes consumables like wiper blades, brakes (pads and discs) and pollen filters, plus the occasional wheel alignment.

Buyers can choose to opt for a three-year/45,000km plan, a four-year/60,000km plan, or a five-year/75,000km plan. But by Australian new vehicle industry standards, all of them are expensive. Very expensive.

See the table below to see how each of the different models stacks up, but as an example, if you choose the most rigorous maintenance plan for an XC90, you’ll pay $6540 for five years, or an average of more than $1300 per annum.

You can bundle the servicing costs into your purchase price, however, and Volvo Australia has also advertised deals including a five-year SmartCare (basic) plan at no cost.

Volvo offers a three-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty as standard.
