It is also transferable to any subsequent registered owner of the vehicle. Volvo and the relevant authorised Volvo retailer will decide whether to repair or replace the components at their discretion. Any parts that are replaced will be retained by Volvo.Below are the details of what is covered and what will be rectified free of charge by an authorised Volvo retailer:
For 36 months after registration date, or until your new vehicle has been driven 60,000 miles, whichever comes first - any component failure attributable to faulty materials of workmanship during manufacture.
For three years from the date that the vehicle is delivered to the first owner, any paintwork defects and surface rust attributable to faulty materials or workmanship during manufacture
