CHESAPEAKE, Va. – Volvo Penta of the Americas today announced a three-year factory warranty for its line of remanufactured marine gasoline engine blocks.
Also, Volvo Penta announced the addition of a 4.3-liter model to its line of remanufactured V8 long block gasoline engines, supplementing the 5.0-, 5.7- and 8.1-liter models previously offered. All remanufactured engines are available with two- to three-day delivery to most locations.
Starting June 1, 2014, all Volvo Penta remanufactured gasoline long blocks are covered with a three- year Replacement Parts & Accessory Limited Warranty. To be covered by the new extended warranty the long block must be installed by an authorized Volvo Penta dealer, Power Center or authorized distributor.
The Volvo Penta remanufactured base engine assemblies provide dealers and customers a lower-cost alternative to new engines for repowering applications with no sacrifice in quality and performance. They are produced to factory specifications by a tightly controlled process using state-of-the-art computer-controlled robotic manufacturing systems, providing original equipment workmanship and durability. They are built with new parts from the original equipment manufacturer and are designed for the saltwater marine environment. Each unit goes through the same rigorous testing, inspection and acceptance as factory-built new engines before they are program certified.
“The new three-year warranty for remanufactured long blocks is consistent with Volvo Penta’s goal to be the clear industry leader in customer service and satisfaction,” said David Kennedy, director parts & accessories operations for Volvo Penta Region Americas.
