Volvo Trucks North America has introduced pre-paid preventive maintenance plans as part of the company’s ongoing effort to reduce customers’ operating costs.
The maintenance plans cover all model year 2011 and newer Volvo models powered by Volvo D11, D13 or D16 engines and align with the new service intervals announced earlier this year, the company says.
Mack Trucks, Volvo’s sister company, introduced a similar program and extended coverage for all model year 2011 and newer Mack models powered by Mack MP7, MP8 or MP10 engines.
Both plans are pre-paid contracts that offer numerous levels of coverage, locking in current parts and labor rates and increasing customer control of maintenance expenses. In addition to three specified plans ranging from basic oil changes and 74-point inspections to more in-depth maintenance, Volvo says its customers can create custom plans of varying scope and duration to fit their specific needs. The plans also offer the option to include service of the aftertreatment system, transmission and chassis.
