    I just had mine and it was $190.00. That is US dollars.

    Default Should be safety check and oil change only

    The 30K, 60K, 90K service checks are the most expensive and will likely be around $500 USD. The 7,500 and 15,000 interval service checks should be any more than $150 max. Considering Volvo tech hourly rates are now around $90 you really can't get away with much less than $150 for a 1 hour service check that will require some parts such as oil, filter, washers, old oil recycling charge, sales tax etc.

    If those are accurate figures(and I'm not doubting they are)... then why do so many people bemoan the "high maintenance costs" of Volvos?

    Granted, a "zippy oil change" is only about $30-50, but I suspect that Volvo goes over quite a few specific things, and this is only every 7500 miles.

    In that context, those costs really don't seem too bad *shrug*
