Volvo Selekt Warranty

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

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.

MOT Test Cover

For added peace of mind all Volvo Selekt cars have MOT Test Cover included.

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.
