Volvo Cars of North America just gave their customers a little more product reassurance by announcing a new lifetime parts and labor warranty for all models.
Part of their new philosophy of “pay once and never pay again” for replacement parts and related labor, Volvo says that once you buy components for all their models, all future costs in terms of additional replacement and installation will be covered by Volvo.
The policy also provides customers with free diagnostics, software updates, personal service, free car washes and alternative transportation.
The press brief didn’t say whether or not this also includes older or classic models, many of which are still on the road today with hundreds of thousands of miles on them. But should this include all models ever made, perhaps this could make life a little easier for those who want to buy highly-demanded, but hard-to-find classic R models, which owners openly admit that they could be a little tricky to keep on the road since all R-models ever made are out of warranty.
Though we sort of doubt that this is the case. We won’t know for sure, but we reached out to Volvo for clarification. Stay tuned and check out the press release after the jump.
