Only Volvo dealers can offer the Volvo Selekt Warranty – one of the most comprehensive warranties available. It covers all key mechanical and electrical components.
Volvo Selekt Warranty is only available on Volvo cars that are under seven years old and have travelled less than 100,000 miles (from the date first registered) at the time of purchase from your Volvo Selekt retailer.
Please note that vehicles that are under two years old at the point of purchase are covered by the Volvo manufacturer warranty, but still benefit from the additional benefits included in the programme All other cars that are under five years old will be covered for 12 months.
Volvo Selekt cars that are more than five years old at the point of purchase will be covered for 6 months (upgrade to 12 months available).
NOTE: Vehicles under 3 years old will have the balance of the manufacturer warranty in place unless the car is between 24 and 36 months old in which case the following Volvo Selekt Warranty cover will take over at the point the original Volvo warranty expires.
Volvo’s Selekt Warranty covers the cost or replacement of any factory-fitted mechanical or electrical component which
suffers a sudden mechanical or electrical failure. The only exceptions are listed under the section below headed “This
warranty does not cover”. Mechanical or electrical failure means the failure of a component, causing a sudden stoppage of its function, for a
reason other than wear and tear, normal deterioration or negligence.
This warranty does not cover: spark plugs, auxiliary drive belts, hoses and pipes (power-assisted steering pressure
pipes are covered), exhaust system and diesel particulate filter (catalytic converters are covered), clutch frictional
material, brake shoes, pads and discs, lamps (LED lamps are covered providing at least 50% of the lighting has failed),
bulbs (Bi-Xenon bulbs are covered), fuses, batteries, paintwork, body panels, body seals and weather strips, handles
and hinges, cosmetic finishes, carpets and trim, upholstery, glass, wiper blades, wheels and tyres, the rectification of any
oil leaks (unless the removal of a major unit is required) and the adjustment of any component, servicing, maintenance
and normal wear and tear.
In the event of a successful claim, we’ll also provide a contribution towards recovery charges, replacement vehicle hire, overnight hotel expenses, emergency travel and consequential damage (Warranty Terms and Conditions apply). Cover is also extended to the continent of Europe for UK residents.
IMPORTANT: Vehicles should be serviced in accordance with the Volvo servicing schedule by an authorised Volvo repairer. Failure to do so may invalidate this warranty. Leeway of one month or 1,000 miles is permitted. Should you have any doubts concerning the service requirements of your Volvo, please contact your retailer for clarification
MOT Test Cover
