Volvo Penta of the Americas announced a new extended coverage program for its leisure marine diesel engines and transmissions.
The new 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 now have the option of buying extended coverage for their Volvo Penta engines and transmissions. The plan covers repair or replacement of defective parts after expiration of the Volvo Penta limited warranty for as long as 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,” Volvo Penta of the Americas president Ron Huibers said in a statement. “By extending the protection, the owner will be able to stay ahead of possible future repair costs. Most leisure boaters wish to keep full control of all costs connected with their boating life, and a good warranty means peace of mind.”
Throughout the limited warranty and extended coverage periods, the owner must follow the Volvo Penta-recommended maintenance schedule.
