Cars aren't just something that can get us comfortably from point A to point B. They are also an impressive piece of machinery that, over time, will break down and require maintenance or repairs. There are many different ways that your vehicle will let you know if an auto repair is necessary. Here are a few basic ways to tell if you should schedule a service appointment with our Kline Volvo Cars of Maplewood service center.

  • Warning Lights - Most newer cars come with multiple warning systems in place. If something is wrong with your vehicle, a warning light may appear on your dash. An alert may also be sent to the Volvo On Call app if you've added it to your phone. If you see any maintenance lights or alerts, make sure to schedule a service appointment right away.
  • Odd Sound - Many issues will produce an odd sound. If you notice a noise that is reoccurring and not normal, you'll want to have our technicians take a closer look. Squealing every time you stop at a stop sign could be a sign of a brake failure, a grinding sound could be an indication that something is wrong with your tire and much more. Regardless, you'll want to have your car inspected as soon as possible.
  • Odd Feeling - If you notice that your vehicle moves differently than normal, this could be a sign that your car needs a repair. Does it veer to one side when it should be going straight? Do the brakes feel funny? Is the a/c not working as it should? These are just a few of the many problems that could arise.
