The trip to the shop was initially just for maintenance prior to a 4k mile road trip.

They also noted that many Volvos need this service around 100k miles.

Tire was damaged beyond repair. The problem with 2013 Volvo S60 that it has a well for spare tire, but not a spare tire. Volvo gives you a can of tire repair, that I've heard destroys the wheel, after repair. By the time you get to gas station to add pressure when tire punctured, the tire is ruined. I blame it on Volvo's insanity not to supply spare tire with a car nor run flat tires.
