Jun 1, 2005 12:00 PM
Volvo Trucks North America used the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky, to introduce an exclusive warranty package for its new VT880 highway tractor. The Platinum Coverage package provides coverage for three years or 600,000 miles. In addition the warranty package covers the cab structure for six years or 1 million miles and the frame for six years or 750,000 miles. If the VT880 is powered by Volvo's new D16 engine, coverage is three years or 600,000 miles; the Cummins ISX engines are covered for three years or 300,000 miles. The Platinum package covers VT880 tractors with a towing allowance for two years or 250,000 miles and up to $450 for towing per incident covered by the warranty. The plan will provide a dedicated toll-free telephone line and replacement D16 engines on short notice to minimize potential vehicle downtime. Where necessary, Volvo will dispatch factory technicians to the dealership where repairs are performed. Volvo says the new Platinum Coverage plan is the longest basic warranty in the industry.
