Volvo Offers Lifetime Warranty on Replacement Parts
Volvo announced today it will warranty any replaced part and labor, not including wear-and-tear items and accessories, for the life of the car. The coverage extends only to service at dealerships.
Volvo owners will pay for the initial replacement parts and labor on vehicles with expired warranties, but Volvo will pay for any additional service on that part for as long as the owner has the car. The parts warranty covers all models from all years and will be honored at all North American Volvo dealerships, according to the automaker.
“The lifetime parts and labor warranty is a commitment to both quality vehicles and quality customer relationships,” Lex Kerssemakers, President and CEO of Volvo Cars of North America said in a statement. “Everyone should feel confident that Volvo is here to support our customers throughout the ownership of their vehicle.”
The parts warranty is part of Volvo’s larger service program that includes roadside assistance, software upgrades and the ever-important, free carwash.
With an upcoming U.S. plant, perhaps Volvo will save on shipping costs.
Damn, right after I swapped the front spring seats on my R for aftermarket billet aluminum ones. They are going to swapping out a lot of them. Curious if it would cover shocks on that platform. They are only available from Monroe and run about $300 a piece. Ufda.
I'd consider this if it meant lifetime replacements for interior parts, its getting to be nearly impossible to keep my 240 wagon looking good inside. Well that and a MAF, exterior trim, water pump perhaps, exaust, certainly that dumb big pan under the engine. Oh, and ODOMETER GEARS!
I ordered an XC90 T8 about a month ago that I'll have in February. This is good news because the wife and I were a little nervous about being early adopters, despite the good reviews on the T8 early on. I hope Volvo makes a strong comeback. I'm sure as hell willing to help because the XC90 is the best in its class right now. Big motors and bad gas mileage is a thing of the past for me. I need efficiency and luxury and Volvo has the best combination of that right now. A great warranty is icing on the cake for me.
Meh. Call me when all non-replacement parts are covered under-warranty for as long as the original owners keeps the car.
