Our Guarantee

Here’s why Volvo Selekt is the smartest way to buy a used Volvo

We are committed to making sure you are 100% satisfied with your Volvo Selekt car. That's why every single car comes with our 30 day exchange guarantee. If you are dissatisfied with your approved used car within 30 days or 1,500 miles driving, whichever comes first, we'll exchange the car for another of equivalent value.

Volvo Selekt Exchange Guarantee

  • The Volvo Selekt car is returned to the Volvo dealer within 30 days of the delivery date and
  • The Volvo dealer is satisfied that the customer is a private purchaser (and not a trade purchaser or otherwise) and
  • The vehicle has covered no more than 1,500 miles since the delivery to the customer and The Volvo dealer, at his absolute discretion, is satisfied that the Volvo Selekt car is in the same condition as at the time of delivery to the customer and The Volvo dealer is satisfied that the customer owns the vehicle and is fully entitled to exchange it under this agreement and The Volvo Selekt car has not been involved in any accident, or been notified or altered so that the car no longer conforms to its original specification, or has been used for racing, trials, rallies, competitive events or for any purpose other than normal private or commercial use.
  • The customer may choose any vehicle as the Replacement vehicle, provided that: It is of an equal or higher price to the Volvo Selekt vehicle and It is readily available from the Volvo Dealer’s stock or another source.
  • Before any exchange is affected the customer shall be responsible for making all the necessary arrangements relating to terminating, transferring to, taking out or otherwise dealing with the financing arrangements for the purchase of the Volvo Selekt car and the Replacement vehicle. Any exchange shall be subject to the Volvo dealer being satisfied with such arrangements.
  • Where the customer wishes to exchange the Volvo Selekt for a vehicle of higher price, the exchange will not take place until the customer has paid the price difference.

Also included in the Volvo Selekt offer is 12 months’ Volvo Assistance. It's more than just a roadside recovery package,– wherever you're driving within the European continent, you'll receive emergency breakdown and recovery 24 hours a day. From a flat tyre to a traffic accident – and whether you are at the roadside or stuck at home – you can count on Volvo Assistance to get you moving again.

Only Volvo dealers can offer the Volvo Selekt Warranty – one of the most comprehensive warranties available. It covers all key mechanical and electrical components.

Details
Cars over 5 years old come with the Volvo Selekt warranty cover for 6 months. Customers have the option to upgrade this to 12 months when taking delivery of the car.

For cars less than 7 years old (and less than 100,000 miles) at purchase

12 Months Unlimited Mileage Warranty (6 months applies on cars over 5 years old at time of purchase – 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.

The comprehensive Volvo Selekt warranty covers the cost or replacement of any factory-fitted mechanical or electrical component which suffers a mechanical or electrical failure. The only exceptions are:

Spark plugs, auxiliary drive belts, hoses and pipes (Power Assisted Steering pressure pipes are covered), exhaust system (catalytic converters are covered), clutch frictional material, brake shoes, pads and discs, lamps (xenon headlamps are covered), bulbs, 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 dealer for clarification.
