How Long Can The Volvo XC60 Last?

How long can the Volvo XC60 last? Perhaps the more appropriate question is, "How long do you intend to keep it?" Volvo vehicles were designed to withstand the punishing climates and harsh road conditions in Sweden. With an emphasis on durability, safety, and comfort, the Volvo brand has created some of the most lasting innovations that the automotive industry has ever seen. Not only that, Volvo vehicles hold the number one and number three spots on the podium for the Guinness World Record when it comes to the highest mileage vehicles. We'll tell you more about this enduring centennial brand and the life expectancy of its vehicles.

Volvo XC60 Reliability

Judging by its world-record-holding siblings, there's no telling how long the Volvo XC60 might last. But if we're looking for a frame of reference, let's take a look at how the factory feels about its vehicles. If you were to buy a used Volvo XC60 that's been certified by our dealership, you'll enjoy a powertrain warranty with unlimited mileage for up to ten years.1 So if a car manufacturer doesn't limit how far their vehicles might be able to go, should you?

Another answer to the question of how long can the Volvo XC60 last is seen through a manufacturer program that rewards you for every 100,000 miles that you and your Volvo vehicle see together. The Volvo Heritage Program has special events, certificates, benefits, and emblems for you and your Volvo XC60 for mileage intervals into the millions. So what's the Volvo average lifetime mileage? It all depends on how far you want to go.

Expected Volvo XC60 Lifespan

Outside of our vehicle's ability to achieve world-record-holding status, let's take a look at some real-world examples. We know how long the Volvo XC60 can last if it's taken care of. But what happens as the years roll by and time or neglect takes hold? If traveling about 10,000 miles per year, a Volvo XC60 SUV can possibly reach 250,000 miles. The laws of probability take over the longer a vehicle is on the road, and factors like accidents and theft will all contribute to how far a new Volvo XC60 might make it.

Service Makes All the Difference

The owners of both world-record Volvo vehicles attribute longevity to regular service at a certified Volvo dealership. If the factory maintenance schedule is adhered to, Volvo XC60 reliability is something to feel great about. In fact, Volvo Cars helps you off on the right foot by including 3 years/36,000 miles of complimentary service with all new vehicles (and 4 years/40,000 miles with current EVs).2

But how long can the Volvo XC60 last after factory coverage has expired? Well, so long as you service your vehicle here with us, we'd like to answer your question by pointing at another incredible program. The Volvo Customer Lifetime Parts & Labor Warranty covers you for life on non-wearable items.3 So let's say your power steering pump needs to be replaced, we'll do so with long-lasting factory equipment. Should it ever fail while you own it, we'll cover parts & labor. It's that simple.

How Long Can the Volvo XC60 Last & Other FAQs

There are two sides to every coin. So with ample proof about how long the Volvo XC60 can last, it begs the question, "will they all last hundreds of thousands of miles, or are there certain Volvo XC60 years to avoid?" This model has been around for 15 years, and the earliest among them can still be seen on the road today.

Your decision to buy a pre-owned Volvo XC60 shouldn't be determined by year. It should be determined by ownership, pedigree, and service history. So let's recap our investigation with some FAQs:

How many miles will a Volvo XC60 last?

Assuming the average annual mileage for most drivers, the first of the line should have about 220,000 miles on them. In other words, the 2010 Volvo XC60 life expectancy is still going strong, given what was discussed above.
