If you're vehicle is still under warranty, it's a no-brainer to have it serviced at an authorized dealer or service location. It's covered, and doing otherwise could void the warranty. But once off warranty, many drivers opt to undergo service and maintenance at third-party garages, where parts and labor can often prove cheaper. Volvo, however, has found a new way of bringing off-warranty service business back into its dealers, while setting its customers' minds at ease in the process.

The Swedish automaker's North American division has just introduced a lifetime warranty on parts and labor for most any service or maintenance work undertaken at one of its authorized dealers. So if you bring your older Volvo in for service at the dealership, you can rest assured that you'll pay once and won't have to pay for either the parts or the labor again if something goes wrong.

It all forms part of what the company presents as the Volvo Service Advantage, which also includes free software updates, diagnostics, a loaner vehicle and a car wash. The coverage is limited strictly to replacement parts, and doesn't include accessories or wear items. So if you break your ski rack, for instance, or wear through the brake pads, you'll still be on your own. Check out more of the details in the press release below.
