Volvo XC60 2019: Why do I already need new brakes?

Answered by CarsGuide 11 Apr 2020

This is a pretty common complaint from owners of a lot of European makes and models. To maximise braking performance, a lot of manufacturers (including Volvo) use a relatively hard brake pad and a relatively soft brake rotor. With the result that by the time the brake pads are worn enough to be replaced, so too are the rotors (discs).

However, the general expectation is that a vehicle should be capable of covering about 60,000km before this work needs to be done, so the 30,000km on your car suggests the brakes work harder than perhaps you think they do.

As for the price, I’d assume that to be using genuine Volvo parts. Shopping around and using aftermarket replacement parts could almost halve that quote.

Answered by CarsGuide 21 Jun 2019

Yes, I think it’s reasonable, nothing lasts forever, and you’ve had a good run out of the car to date. Accept it and move on.

Volvo XC60 2017: Exccessive brake pad wear

Answered by CarsGuide 25 Jan 2019

That is excessive. Try an independent mechanic or brake service outlet and you should be able to have it done for much less.

How to reset maintenance light on Volvo XC60?

Answered by CarsGuide 31 Aug 2018

Maintenance lights are an important way your car tells you it needs to go to a mechanic and have consumables like engine oil, or faulty parts, changed. There are ways to turn these lights off when they illuminate, but that does not fix the problem (which is the reason the light turned on in the first place), so if you see the maintenance light come on just book your car in with a mechanic to have it diagnosed and fixed properly. They can turn the service light off for you.
