“My Volvo truck has always been serviced at Volvo Kettering every six weeks and I’ve been driving iton the same clutch for 7½ years. Over 1 million km, it’s a nice feeling,” says Phil Moore, who drivesa Volvo FM9. “It’s proved to me that driving right and with a Genuine Volvo Part that really is madeto last, makes the perfect combination. My first Volvo done me proud, this second one has doneme even prouder.” Thanks Phil!We can’t guarantee every part will last a million kilometres but we can guarantee that with GenuineVolvo Service and Genuine Volvo Parts you will see the difference in business efficiency andlong-term maintenance.
