Give them a call tomorrow and try and arrange something.

Thanks
Its a busy garage, so it depends what you want doing really. If you just want them to tell you what covers the engine needs, then they might say just pop down with it & they'll have a look.

If its servicing or repairs, then you'll have to book it in.

Good luck & let us know how you get on.

Yes, I had that done on my car too after I bought it. It did need a few bits doing to it though.

The cam belt was suggested to be done practically immediately, which I budgeted for when I was negotiating the price with the seller. Then they gave it a service, checked over the suspension etc.

I've found Hallmark a decent garage, hence why I suggested them to you. They charge a fraction of what a dealership would & won't tell you something needs doing if it doesn't. Bare in mind, Volvo's are what I'd call cheap to maintain... so don't be expecting to pay Fiat Panda prices for servicing/repairs either!

Let us know how you got on when you get the car back.
