Not everything in life comes with a warranty. Ok, some things do come with a limited period warranty. But cars, usually a couple of years or the maximum is five years from what I have heard which is part of a special offer. Volvo Canada has done something unprecedented, unheard of in the automotive industry. Lifetime parts and labour warranty on all replacement parts purchased and installed at an authorized Volvo retailer. Yes, a lifetime warranty on everything!!
Volvo’s already have an image of being a tank and being very long lasting, but this act speaks volumes about the confidence of the company in their products. “This best-in-class warranty offers peace of mind to our customers as it covers not only the replacement part, but also the cost to install it, and provides an additional benefit to servicing at an authorized Volvo retailer.” said Carol Kitchen, Vice President of Customer Service for Volvo Cars of Canada. “Volvo Cars continues to focus on our customers’ needs and the implementation of the Lifetime Warranty is a further illustration of that point.”
This means that, for as long as you own the vehicle, you won’t have to pay for replacement parts and the labour required to have them installed on your Volvo. Of course, accessories and select wear items (tires, brakes, batteries, etc.) are not covered which is perfectly acceptable.
Currently, Volvo India warranty covers 12 months from date of delivery and an additional 12 months for the drive line components. The additional warranty is based on engine hours or the number of kilometers. If your car breaks down suddenly, the transportation of the car to the nearest dealer or on-site minor repair is done by the company. If the initial 12 month warranty period is complete it is necessary to buy the extended warranty period without which a customer would not be able to avail any kind of benefits under the scheme.
