Volvo Warranties

Volvo is famously known for safety and reliability, with a long and rich history of designing and engineering its cars around people. Our approach sets us apart in the automotive industry. We stand behind this approach with a free 3 year, unlimited kilometre, warranty on all new Volvo vehicles, as well as a 3 year unlimited kilomentre service plan. This commence from the date of first registration and will contribute to making your car ownership as safe and comfortable as possible.

Using Genuine Parts

We are confident that our cars, which are among the world’s safest, are also built to last. However, any unforeseen manufacturing issues with the car that are covered by the factory warranty will, of course, be promptly remedied free of charge, by Volvo-trained technicians using Volvo Genuine Parts.

Transferable to new owners

This peace of mind is at the heart of our warranty. Volvo is willing to stand behind their products to keep the owner safe and get them back on the road as quickly as possible. It provides Volvo owners with peace of mind for up to 3 years from their new vehicle purchase. In addition, if you decide to sell your new Volvo before the warranty expires, the warranty follows the car and is transferred to the next owner, which we consider an important benefit in securing peace of mind for the subsequent owner. This will also help you to attract more buyers once the time comes to sell.
