If you're leasing...........sure.When should the first oil change be done? Is it 7500 miles?
Probably a bit early; especially for a non turbo.Should the oil be changed after the "break-in" period (1000 miles?!)?
Officially......no. Realistically, 7500 miles is too long for the initial fill (unless leasing).Well, actually is there any "break-in" period for XC60? I am curious..
Factory fill through MY2012 is a synthetic blend (or is supposed to be.....depending what the dealer stocks). The 10K interval is based on now using a full synthetic. I can already see the service departments using a blend in cars that should get synthetic. That said, the only true test is to do an oil analysis.I have a feeling that 7500 miles is a little bit long distance for oil change. Is synthetic oil used by default in XC60?
No typo, and not a problem if you use propper oil. I've understood you rather change oil often in NA than buying expensive oil that lasts!? Servicentervall have been this long on volvocars since my2005 in europe.Is there any typo? 18750 miles??!?
I can't imagine.
And again I say, only an analysis will tell you for sure. Some manufacturers have tried these intervals and ended up with sludge. That said, an NA engine won't be as hard on oil as a DI, turbo, etc. I plan to send off my 5K oil and see what the details are.Servicentervall have been this long on volvocars since my2005 in europe.
That is the first S&S freebie...........but it doesn't mean that you can't have it changed (on your dime) before that.I have made a short visit at the service department of my local Volvo dealership, The service advisor confirmed that first oil change is normally scheduled at 7500 miles (for MY12) indeed.
Well, I guess I will get it done when my car reaches 7500 miles then...
