      One Year Old - Is it time for Service?

      My 2019 T6 Inscription is one year old today. I have approx 9300km.

      I was looking on the Volvo Canada website for their Schedule Maintenance schedule - here is what I found:


      https://www.volvocars.com/en-ca/own/...ed-maintenance

      Service 1 at 16,000km

      Includes: Oil & Filter change with Synthetic oil, Chassis Inspection, Update technical software and clean windshield in front of Intellisafe support camera.

      Should wait for a while since I only have 9300km? I already have the latest software update (July 2019). Is see the first service is basically an oil change and they clean the front windshield (this is odd we have to pay them to clean the front glass?).

      Your thoughts...

      Thanks....

      In Sweden it's after 1 year or 15000 km (~10000 miles), whichever comes first.

      I also have very low mileage and get the reminder waaaay before the car reaches the designated mileage. My 18 has only 14,600 miles (been driving it since Oct 17) and I've been getting the reminder since mid October. This time I'm going to wait closer to 20,000 before I take it in. But last year they did the 10,000 service at 6k miles. I think it assumes we all drive the average number of miles in a year.

      It is better to keep the 1yr schedule. Low mileage means most of driving is in city streets, and maintenance is needed sooner than driving on freeway, as RPM is usually higher.

      Are you going from build date or in service date? It should be serviced at 1 year from the in service date. Not sure what the grace period is time-wise but if you wait too long you might lose the free service.

      And there have been software updates since July.

      Are you leasing it or do you want it to last forever? You should have them in once a year. Short drives with low miles are far harder on the lubricants than lots of highway miles. You get condensation and it doesn't get to burn out as well. I tell folks part of the reason Volvo's can last so long is because customers tend to take really good care of them.

      Thanks for the replies...

      I actually work from home so I really don't drive anywhere. A majority of my trips are usually highway trips on the weekends to play golf (30k-80k each way). So not that many short trips. Have to pick up the kids from school may be 4 times a month...

      I might was well take it in - since it is the first service the oil might be a bit dirty with any break-in particles....

      Oh - and for @tech - it is service date for me - I took delivery one year ago today.

      Thanks guys....

      Hi spas1
      I came across an interesting article that may assist with your decision.... Whilst the guy on this site is a bit of a wild so and so he speaks the truth!

      I wouldn't hesitate to have it serviced, in fact my XC60 is going in this week for it's service.. and yes I don't have the distance traveled only the time is up.

      I’m in the same boat - I work from home. Golf course once a week or I drive to the airport. I travel a lot. Outside of that, I drive 2 hours to see my kids. I have 47k on my 2015.5 and I’m getting flooded with maintenance reminders. Oh, I change my own oil every 5k miles.

      Another “work” from home here also. Although I do have to make a 1.5-2 hour field trip 3-4 times a month.

      I’m at 8200 miles now, so probably in January I’ll get my first service.
