Extended Warranty – What's covered? - UK

The warranty offers full protection against the cost or replacement of any factory fitted mechanical or electrical component which suffers a sudden mechanical or electrical failure.

The only exceptions are:

  • Exhaust system (catalytic converters are covered), tyres and batteries.
  • Parts replaced as a result of fair wear and tear including, but not limited to, clutch plates, brake shoes, pads and discs, wiper blades, bulbs and fuses.
  • Damage to paintwork, trim, glass or chrome work or any damage caused by any external influence including, but not limited to, bird lime and atmospheric fall-out, stone chips and scratches.
  • Bodywork and wheel corrosion.
     

Important

Vehicles should be serviced in accordance with the Volvo servicing schedule by an authorised Volvo repairer. Failure to do so may invalidate this insurance. A leeway of one month or 1,000 miles is permitted.

Should you have any doubts concerning the service requirements of your Volvo, then please contact your Volvo dealer for clarification.

 

Maximum Claim Limit

There is no limit to any individual claim, with the exception of claims for out of pocket expenses. However, our total liability over the warranty period is the purchase price of the vehicle (i.e. the price you paid for it).
