Volvo Penta of the Americas has announced a new Extended Coverage program for its leisure marine diesel engines and transmissions effective as of October 1. The new Extended Coverage program supplements the expanded and strengthened limited warranty for diesel engines, which now includes three extra years of major component coverage for diesel engines and IPS drives.
Boaters will now have the option of purchasing extended coverage for their Volvo Penta engines and transmissions. The plan provides boaters with full engine and transmission protection, covering repair or replacement of defective parts after expiration of the Volvo Penta limited warranty for up to five years of factory protection.
"Extended Coverage provides peace of mind to boaters who want to ensure that their favorite pastime is protected from unexpected costs,' said Ron Huibers, President, Volvo Penta of the Americas. "By extending the protection, the owner will be able to stay ahead of possible future repair costs. The basic objective and the primary user benefits of the extended coverage are predictability and control. Most leisure boaters wish to keep full control of all costs connected with their boating life and a good warranty means peace of mind. As an addition to the newly improved Volvo Penta International Limited Warranty, the Extended Coverage offer is a welcome ‘piece of the puzzle' for a positive boating experience.'
A boat owner may purchase Extended Coverage from authorized Volvo Penta dealers at the time of engine purchase, boat delivery or up to three months from the date of commissioning and delivery. Throughout the limited warranty and Extended Coverage periods, the owner must follow the Volvo Penta recommended maintenance schedule.
There are qualified Volvo Penta service dealers in more than 130 countries, backed up by 40 Volvo Group warehouses that feed parts and accessories to 15,000 distribution points all over the world.
