I ALWAYS encourage people to purchase parts from companies that support the brand. They stock parts that Volvo dealerships don't even stock.

Other companies offer a great warranties as well. The only hard thing to me is the time it takes for parts to arrive in NM, 10 to 15 days is a long wait.

Walked in and got a 2nd free replacement for a large can of Pentosin DOT4 brake fluid,
flushing all of our cars. Had to fill out a form this time but no trouble, they looked up
and read me all the invoice numbers etc.

Volvo is running Castrol 10W-30 from them and I have gotten a free replacement.

Our other cars are running LquiMolly 5W-30 and I also got free replacements of it.
