The Volvo ownership experience is made up of many parts. Some are obvious, some are not. If you think about it, a Volvo owner probably wouldn't want your workshop to exchange the genuine parts that make their Volvo a Volvo, for something else that is not 100% guaranteed to support original safety and quality. What they'd probably want is to have their Volvo professionally serviced, with Volvo genuine parts, the only spare parts that are always guaranteed to carry the same uncompromising promise as the car itself. Parts that you know have been designed, tested and manufactured according to Volvo's detailed specifications, in order to interact optimally with all the other parts in the different systems of the car.
Peace of Mind for owners of Older Volvo Cars
No one knows how far a Volvo can go. The current Guinness World Record 'Highest Car Mileage' is held by a 1966 Volvo P1800 which has covered more than 3,572,342 km! Keeping a car in shape for such a mileage calls for a secure supply of spare parts, just like genuine classic parts. That's why owners of older discontinued Volvos all over the world can have their parts ordered from regular Volvo dealers to ensure the original performance of their car. In fact, since material technologies evolved over the years, the parts delivered today actually have a higher quality than when the car was in production. For example, synthetic rubber is replacing natural rubber, providing a higher resistance against oil and UV rays.
Why should you purchase Volvo Genuine Parts?
Only genuine Volvo parts are designed and tested together with the vehicle. Only parts which have stood up to Volvo's extremely stringent demands are allowed to carry the Volvo label. And only genuine Volvo parts are guaranteed to offer the right quality and give you the right prerequisites for profitable operations. Saving a few dollars can cost a fortune! Marginal savings should be offset against the likely results if the non-genuine part is not of sufficiently high quality. The consequence of just a single unscheduled towing, repair and dissatisfied customer can transform a cheap purchase price into a very expensive experience indeed. A genuine Volvo part is guaranteed to be technically perfect. It is covered by a two year comprehensive warranty and delivered by our quick and efficient dealer network. The best way to ensure your customers' Volvo remains reliable and safe is to keep the vehicle 100% Volvo through and through.
In addition to the Vehicle Warranty, which covers parts supplied as original equipment when the vehicle was purchased, there is a separate parts and accessories warranty for genuine Volvo parts and accessories purchased by the customer from a Volvo dealer. Genuine Volvo parts and accessories have been specifically designed to help maintain vehicles to comply with Volvo safety and reliability standards. We therefore recommend that only genuine Volvo parts and accessories for the vehicle are used.
