CHESAPEAKE, Va. — Volvo Penta shared details this week of its new Penta Protection program, which combines a two-year Volvo Penta factory limited warranty with an additional three years of coverage through First Protection Corp. (FPC). Penta Protection is standard for all gasoline EFI sterndrive engines manufactured after July 1 and delivered in North America, the company reported in a release.
Penta Protection consists of two distinct parts: A two-year Volvo Penta factory limited warranty and a three-year Volvo Penta Extended Protection limited warranty that provides coverage for mechanical breakdowns that may occur after the factory warranty has expired.
The Volvo Penta Extended Protection limited warranty is administered by FPC, which has provided post-factory warranty coverage for Volvo Penta owners for more than 15 years.
“With the current economic uncertainties, Volvo Penta believes that now is the right time to offer new boat owners the assurance that their Volvo Penta EFI engines are backed by industry-leading limited warranties for many years,” said Bob Apple, senior vice president of sales and marketing.
Enrollment in Penta Protection occurs automatically at delivery and can be transferred to a new owner any time during the five-year coverage period.
