Common Volvo Repairs

We can fix these issues, and any others that you have, plus perform the regular maintenance that your Jeep deserves!

  • Front upper strut mounts may wear prematurely, resulting in loud noise from the front of the vehicle when going over bumps.

  • This often fails, preventing the transmission from shifting into overdrive. In some cases the Overdrive light may stay all the time or not come on at all. In addition, the transmission may whine, clunk, or hum and refuse to go into gear.

  • Drivers have reported that the car stopped and seat belts engaged while driving at a high rate of speed, which is an extreme safety hazard.

  • A vibration from the rear of the car when braking may be caused by corroded rotors, especially when braking going downhill. The rotors will need to be replaced and special shims installed to prevent this from happening again.

  • Despite adding adequate oil, drivers have reported excessive oil consumption and the warning “no oil pressure – turn off for safety,” the result of a faulty engine oil dipstick that may allow engine oil to leak out of the crankcase.

  • 5 star review  I wish I could give Milito’s 10 stars! My car had an emergency issue and had to be towed. I haven’t owned a car for many years and I had no idea where to have it towed in the city. My insurance company first connected me with a different mechanic, but when I called the person on the other end of the phone was rude, and told me that my car wouldn’t be a priority to them and said they’d “Get to it when they get to it”. Needless to say I hung up and started to search for a mechanic on my own. I came across Milito’s and saw their great reviews, so I gave them a call. Lupé answered the phone, and she couldn’t have been nicer. Having car problems is a stressful situation, Lupé understood that and was so sweet to me. She explained that they would likely be able to work on my car the next morning (it was already 3:30pm when I called) and that someone would call me before the worked on it. JJ called me the next morning before 9am - he and I spoke about my car; I also mentioned to him that I had an event in the afternoon and that I was hoping to have my car fixed by then. He said he would do everything he could to make that happen. By 11am JJ had already called back to tell me that he put 2 technicians on my car and they had been able to replace my cars broken part and I could come pick it up whenever I wanted! He also said they would clean up my car and make it look nice. Boy did they ever! When I walked up to Milito’s, I could see my car from a block away - As Riri said, it was “Shining bright like a diamond”. My car looked brand new. I can not recommend Milito’s enough!

Benefits of Getting Consistent Mechanical Check-Ups

Improved Reliability

If you don’t take good care of your vehicle, it won’t be there for you in the future.

While this means oil changes and tire rotations, it also entails having routine check-ups performed by expert Volvo service center at Milito’s Auto Repair in Chicago.

Higher Resale Value

If you’re looking to sell your car at some point in the future, you’ll want to keep up with routine service and maintenance.

This will help to ensure that it continues to run in optimal condition. Selling it will not only be easier down the road, but much more profitable!

Better Fuel Economy

First, make sure your tire pressure is set to the right levels. This prevents your car from expending unnecessary energy and fuel while moving.

If your air filter is clogged or your fuel lines are leaking, your Volvo’s fuel economy can be negatively affected by up to 20%.

How Volvo Has Stood The Test Of Time

Unmatched Safety

Since the first Volvo rolled off the production line in 1927, the company has created world-changing innovations. The company is a truly global organization with Scandinavian roots and manufacturing in Sweden, Belgium, China, and in the United States.

It’s true that Volvo hasn’t always been known for good looks, but they’re often considered durable, and the brand has repeatedly staked its reputation on safety — and that each model is packed with value.

Volvos aren’t supposed to be shiny. They’re supposed to look good when they haven’t been washed for weeks and have back seats adorned with old wool blankets, dog hair, football equipment, and thermoses of strong black coffee.

That’s why vehicles produced by Volvo have followers all over the world — and for a good reason. They have a Scandinavian design, a strict but luxurious interior, perfect engineering, and safety that is unmatched in the market.

According to the company, they’re ambitious. “We aim to continue leading the global automotive industry in safety technology, electrification and autonomous drive and we continually challenge ourselves.”

And drivers are taking notice.

If you’re looking for a luxury car but don’t want to pay for a brand new model, a used Volvo is the way to go.

Here are six things that you should do:

  1. Read the Records – Check the serial number with your local Volvo dealer for a service history. If they don’t have a history, make sure it has credible records from the owner. And always ask to see the receipts for repair work and scheduled maintenance.
  2. Professional Inspection – Even if you ran a vehicle history report, you should still have the car inspected by a mechanic to find potential issues and to determine if the car has been in an unreported accident. Make sure they pay attention to engine-related components, like fluids, hoses and belts, radiator, and the battery.
  3. Check the Tires – Tires can tell you a lot regarding the maintenance and driving history of the car. If tires are worn unevenly across the width of the tread, this could indicated aggressive driving by the previous owner of the vehicle. Also look at the surface of the tire for feathering (bad alignment). Bad alignment can be caused by worn steering/suspension components, the Chicago potholes, or frame damage.
  4. Certified Pre-Owned – The certification provides a 6-year, 100,000-mile warranty that includes 24-hour roadside assistance for the life of the warranty. Each Certified by Volvo vehicle has to pass a rigorous test with more than 170 points, have less than 80,000 miles, and receive a detailed CARFAX Vehicle History Report.
  5. Mileage – Volvos are well-known for being able to run long after hitting the six-figure mileage mark. Have a mileage number in mind that you would prefer before you make a purchase, as it will matter concerning future maintenance.
  6. Test Drive – You’re judging your comfort level with the car. Do the power windows all work? Are the mirrors easily adjustable? In addition, check for leaks. Many times they can be hidden from prospective buyers by under filling levels on fluids to stop them from leaking. Take a look at the underbody; if you see a lot of fluid, pass on this vehicle.

The History of Volvo

Volvo is actually Latin for “I roll”, which is exactly what the company did in April 1927 when the first car rolled out of the factory in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Founded by Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larsson, quality and safety which were both of paramount importance to the company, a concept that still applies to the vehicles produced by Volvo today.

In the beginning, the company produced both closed top and cabriolet models of their new four-cylinder OV4 and PV4 models, which were constructed to better withstand the harsh Swedish climate, something that had been an issue with contemporary US imports. Both models carried the Swedish symbol for iron attached to a diagonal piece if metal on the front grille – a piece of Volvo’s heritage that can still be seen on models today.
