Volvo Penta of the Americas, Chesapeake, Virginia, will now be offering a three-year factory warranty for its line of remanufactured marine gasoline engine blocks.
As of June 1, 2014, all Volvo Penta remanufactured gasoline long blocks are covered with a three-year Replacement Parts & Accessory Limited Warranty. To be covered by the new extended warranty the long block must be installed by an authorized Volvo Penta dealer, Power Center or authorized distributor.
"The new three-year warranty for remanufactured long blocks is consistent with Volvo Penta's goal to be the clear industry leader in customer service and satisfaction,' said David Kennedy, Director Parts and Accessories operations for Volvo Penta Region Americas.
Volvo Penta also announced the addition of a 4.3-litre model to its line of remanufactured V8 long block gasoline engines, supplementing the 5.0-, 5.7- and 8.1-liter models previously offered. All remanufactured engines are available with two- to three-day delivery to most locations.
Volvo Penta's remanufactured base engine assemblies provide dealers and customers a lower-cost alternative to new engines for repowering applications. The company says they are produced to factory specifications by a tightly controlled process using advanced computer-controlled robotic manufacturing systems, providing original equipment workmanship and durability. They are built with new parts from the original equipment manufacturer and are designed for the saltwater marine environment. Each unit goes through the same testing, inspection and acceptance as factory-built new engines before they are program certified.
Volvo Penta, with approximately 4,000 dealers in more than 130 countries, is a global manufacturer of engines for leisure boats and commercial vessels as well as industrial applications. The engine program includes diesel and gasoline engines with power outputs between 10 and 1200 hp. Volvo Penta is part of the Volvo Group, one of the world's leading manufacturers of heavy trucks, buses and construction equipment.
