Volvo Australia is offering new vehicle buyers several sweeteners before the end of the financial year including free servicing, fuel and roadside assistance.

Dubbed Volvo Freedom, the special offer includes three years free scheduled servicing, three years worth of free fuel, and three years warranty with roadside assist across Volvo’s range of passenger cars and SUVs including the C30, S60 and XC90.

Volvo Freedom is available on all new and demonstrator Volvos purchased and delivered before May 31 (excluding the recently released Volvo V40) through participating dealerships.

Volvo C30 T5 R-Design

Limited while stock is available, the offer sees the free scheduled servicing restricted to a maximum of 60,000km and does not include wear and tear items, additional work or additionally required components. The free fuel component is presented in the form of a pre-paid credit card with the amount of credit calculated based on an average 15,000km of travel per year for 3 years, the model’s specific combined fuel consumption figure, and a fuel price of $1.50 per litre.

Volvo Freedom joins recent offers announced by Honda, Mitsubishi and Nissan.

    Now if only Ford knew how to add incentives like this to the falcon

    • sjg

      This offer is only worth about $3000. Ford gives about $10000 discounts on Falcoone.

      • Jason Briggs

        How did you get to that conclusion?
        Fuel alone is worth $3000 over 3 years

        • ahg

          Your right though it depends on which model. It’s more of a $5000 offer but it still isn’t close to the deals Ford dealers offer on Falcoone.

    Volvo must be having problems shifting cars. While this is probably a good offer, it appears to be little more than the rolling incentives they’ve been offering for the last 3-4 months on selected models. And in keeping with their previous offers, its only short term (must be delivered by the end of May) and thus is directed at shifting showroom stock. Not that there’s anything wrong with this sort of marketing strategy – its just when Volvo are carrying on the same sort of short term “specials” for months on end tends to throw into question the integrity of their base pricing.

      I think you’ll find that Volvo always have some incentive on, demonstrator sales, free teknik upgrades, cheap interest, now this. Then in a month or two it all rolls around again. I keep an eye on the sales because I’m waiting for that golden moment when I can pick up my missus her next car cheap and with a good low interest rate. Personally, because I drive less than 10,000km per annum and I can write off a lot of my running costs, I’d rather save on the price where I get no benefit except maybe depreciation, to a point. And yes, I know interest is deductible too, but with Volvo at one stage offering well under 5% from memory, it’s almost like paying no interest at all.

        I think Volvo is reading the market correctly. With free fuel, service and road assist. The customer can take a lease and will have no other bills to pay for 3 years.

        My wife just bought a XC60 with 3 year warranty and 5 year free servicing and 5 year free road assist and all the other cars we drove at a similar price did not have any cost reductions.

        • Peter

          Nice. When your warranty runs out you can also extend the warranty 2 or 3 years, for about $2500 which makes some sense if you are going to keep it. They have a deal with Allianz. And if you sell the car, you get a refund of the unused extra warranty period. I’ve done that with our past 2 volvos. But for me I’d rather amortise the benefit of the current offer (say $3K) and get it off the price.

          • JoeR_AUS

            Thanks for the tip on warranty, we took 5 year lease so will extend for another 2 years. For me the 5 year free servicing was corporate partners between Volvo and the company I work for.

  • Marka

    This is a much better idea than just dropping the price

  • Sarah

    Very tempting, I will have my car paid off in less than 4 months – do I want to endure debt again for a nice new shiny v40? If only Mercedes offered this with the new A250 I would be sold.

    • Peter

      Hi! Volvo dont make that offer on the V40 as yet but I suppose it is only a matter of time. But have some fun and test drive both the A250 and the V40T5. My wife and I did, while I preferred the exterior of the Benz and the turning circle was better, the volvo is quicker, quieter, more comfortable, better set out inside, bigger, and has more standard gear, so you can get a good one for mid $50Ks whereas with the Benz you really need to spend over $60K to get one with leather and sat nav. So while the Benz was fun, the volvo was a much better proposition.

      • JoeR_AUS

        Volvo does have free servicing in the V40, just not the fuel.

        MB made no offers to me, the dealer quoted only if you spend over 70k.

    • JoeR_AUS

      The V40 is a match for the A250 but not in snob value!
