Volvo Used Trucks has added the option of an extended warranty package to its full range of used commercial vehicles. 

Currently Volvo Economy used trucks come with a six-month unlimited mileage warranty covering the basic driveline, while Volvo Approved used trucks get a more comprehensive 12-month driveline warranty up to 180,000km. Volvo Selected used trucks have a 24-month driveline warranty covering 360,00km.

The new extended warranty, available at an additional cost, doubles up the peace of mind for Economy and Approved vehicles, extending coverage to for 12 months and 24 months respectively. Meanwhile, cover for Selected vehicles is stretched out to 
36 months.

Volvo Used Trucks Economy Centre manager, Steven Worts, said: “Some of the trucks can have up to one million km on the clock so to be able to extend an Economy vehicle to have a 12-month warranty is a really big deal. It’s good to now be able to offer people the option of that extra coverage. 

“We underwrite our own warranties and it felt it was something worth looking at, and it shows that we really back our products throughout their life, as our basic driveline warranty even includes the AdBlue system.”

The option of an extended warranty on Volvo Used Trucks was made available from the beginning of 2020 and will be priced according to the individual vehicles.
