The best way for you to buy a used Volvo car, with the piece of mind of the Volvo promise.
We select only the best available cars. We improve them through Volvo approved checks and then make them even better with the latest software upgrades. The package is completed with an extensive warranty, including MOT Test Cover, roadside assistance, and even a 30 day exchange promise to guarantee your satisfaction. All you need to do is go to selekt.volvocars.co.uk and choose the Volvo that is right for you.
Every Volvo Selekt car has a history and provenance check carried out and has to pass over 100 checks to meet Volvo's safety, performance and appearance standards. During preparation, we only use Volvo Genuine Parts, ensuring that your Volvo remains 100% pure Volvo. We also connect every car back to the factory’s original record and upgrade the car’s software. This service is exclusive to Volvo dealers and ensures that your Selekt car is running to the optimum capability.
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.
With Volvo Selekt Warranty your car is covered across Europe, giving you peace of mind wherever you are.
For added peace of mind all Volvo Selekt cars have MOT Test Cover included. That means that regardless how young or old your Volvo Selekt Approved used car is, when the next MOT test is due, it is covered for the majority of items which may cause a test failure. Click on the link below for full details.
Also included in the Selekt offer is 12 months’ Volvo Assistance. It's more than just a roadside recovery package,– wherever you're driving within the European continent, you'll receive emergency breakdown and recovery 24 hours a day. From a flat tyre to a traffic accident – and whether you are at the roadside or stuck at home – you can count on Volvo Assistance to get you moving again.
We are committed to making sure you are 100% satisfied with your Volvo Selekt car. That's why every single car comes with our 30 day exchange guarantee. If you are dissatisfied with your Selekt used car within 30 days or 1,500 miles driving, whichever comes first, we'll exchange the car for another of equivalent value.
For cars less than 7 years old (and less than 100,000 miles) at purchase
12 Months Unlimited Mileage Warranty (6 months applies on cars over 5 years old at time of purchase – Upgrade to 12 months available)
NOTE: Vehicles under 3 years old will have the balance of the manufacturer warranty in place unless the car is between 24 and 36 months old in which case the following Volvo Selekt Warranty cover will take over at the point the original Volvo warranty expires.
The comprehensive Volvo Selekt warranty covers the cost or replacement of any factory-fitted mechanical or electrical component which suffers a mechanical or electrical failure. The only exceptions are:
Spark plugs, auxiliary drive belts, hoses and pipes (Power Assisted Steering pressure pipes are covered), exhaust system (catalytic converters are covered), clutch frictional material, brake shoes, pads and discs, lamps (xenon headlamps are covered), bulbs, fuses, batteries, paintwork, body panels, body seals and weather strips, handles and hinges, cosmetic finishes, carpets and trim, upholstery, glass, wiper blades, wheels and tyres, the rectification of any oil leaks (unless the removal of a major unit is required) and the adjustment of any component, servicing, maintenance and normal wear and tear.
In the event of a successful claim, we’ll also provide a contribution towards recovery charges, replacement vehicle hire, overnight hotel expenses, emergency travel and consequential damage (Warranty Terms and Conditions apply). Cover is also extended to the continent of Europe for UK residents.
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.
