Volvo is a Swedish automobile manufacturer based in Gothenburg, Sweden. In 1999, the rights to the company were awarded to the Volvo production efforts at Ford and in March 2010 to the Chinese company Zhejiang Geely Holding Group. The Swedish Volvo is now working independently at the passenger car division at Volvo Car Corporation and is concerned with the production of buses, upper power buses, trucks and construction equipment.
Volvo was founded in 1915 as an experimental division of the Swedish ball bearing manufacturer SKF. In 1926/27, Assar Gabrielsson, a sales director and engineer Gustaf Larson turned Volvo into an independent company. By 1958, the two came out with ten different Volvo vehicle series.
An international breakthrough was reached with the twelfth production series of the PV544 model (1958 - 1965). In the commercial vehicle manufacturing side of things, Volvo celebrated its success,es especially after 1967, when Sweden surrounded itself with new Volvo bus models that entered the market. In 1968, the Volvo bus division was established and a year later, the Volvo Car and Volvo's truck division followed.
In 1999, the car division of Volvo - Volvo Car Corporation - was made, with the Renault truck division forming in 2001. On March 28, 2010, Ford signed a purchase contract with the Chinese Zhejiang Geely Holding Group in Gothenburg. According to the details, Zhejiang Geely acquired the Volvo Car Corporation for $1.6 billion.
Has Your Volvo Auto Warranty Expired or is it About to Expire?
New Volvo owners will be happy to know that their vehicles will carry Wear Item Limited Warranty plans that guarantee 4 years / 50,000 miles worth of coverage. This will also cover the powertrain as well. Volvos carry very lengthy battery and rust warranties too. These warranties are also transferable to any new owners when you sell your vehicle with no transfer costs.
The new vehicle warranty covers any repair needed due to workmanship or defective materials. It will not, however, include those items that are damaged in accidents. The coverage is in effect for 4 years or 50,000 miles for vehicles that are not used as commercial vehicles.
The Powertrain Limited Warranty is also covered for 4 years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. It covers the engine, transaxle/axles, drive systems, transmission and their components.
Toyota also offers one of the best Seat Belt Lifetime Warranty plans available as well. If for any reason your seat belt fails, just take it to a dealership and they will repair it or replace it for free.
Why Extend Your Volvo Auto Warranty?
While Volvo offers a generous 4-year / 50,000 mile Wear Item Limited Warranty, the sad fact is that all warranties end. At the end of 4 years, repairs are no longer covered and the owner is responsible for every repair costs. While repairs are an inevitable part of auto ownership, the costs themselves can induce anxiety. With no warranty coverage, many owners find themselves stressing over how to afford repairs.
One way to budget for future car repairs is to invest in a vehicle protection contract (formerly called an extended auto warranty). Vehicle protection contracts kick in after the bumper-to-bumper warranty on your Volvo expires. While it may be tempting to ignore getting additional coverage, it’s important to note that powertrain warranties only cover approximatelyabout ¼ of the components on your Volvo. Only with a wrap vehicle protection contract is that additional ¾ may be covered. Protection contracts can include not just what was covered before but may also include coverage on additional parts.
With more people planning to keep their Volvo for as long as it lives, a vehicle protection contract can save an owner thousands. At Vehicle Protection Headquarters, we help you protect your investment by offering affordable protection contracts that can help reduce financial stress repair costs bring.
