Volvo Models Requiring Synthetic Oil

Purchasing a new vehicle is a major investment, and now that you have made your decision it is important to ensure you are giving your Volvo the care it deserves. Did you know that by simply switching your vehicle to synthetic oil you can reduce your gas consumption by up to 2% a year while prolonging the life of your engine? Most synthetic oil, such as the brands our Volvo Technicians use can actually clean residue and build up inside your engine to keep it running at peak performance.
