Volvo Car Malaysia has extended its pre-owned car programme, Volvo SELEKT, beyond the Klang Valley with the inclusion of a second dealership in Penang to handle pre-owned vehicles. Previously exclusively offered through Sisma Auto Glenmarie, Western Circle, an authorised Volvo dealer in the state of Penang, will now also house SELEKT cars, with additional listings available on Carlist.my.
Located in Juru on the mainland, Western Circle services customers and clients in the northern region. Now, besides offering the latest models, the dealership can also offer pre-owned units. All Volvo SELEKT cars undergo Volvo-approved checks to ensure that they meet the safety, performance, and appearance standards. This check and selection process can only be done by authorised Volvo Car dealers.
12 month warranty provided
Consequently, each dealership’s vehicles will meet the same high standards for all pre-owned vehicles and conducts a series of checks and updates. Additionally, those who purchase Volvo SELEKT vehicles will get a complimentary 12-months warranty and a 1-year maintenance service package (VSA 1) for peace of mind.
In addition to physical dealerships, the public can also browse and shop for Volvo vehicles – either Volvo SELEKT or Volvo quality used cars – from the safety of their homes through the Volvo Used Car Locator, an online platform that holds an inventory of all Volvo pre-owned cars available across 14 dealerships in Malaysia.
“When customers purchase a Volvo under our Volvo SELEKT programme, they are not just getting a more streamlined shopping experience of quality cars at a more accessible price but also peace of mind through our dedicated service and assurance of quality,” said Charles Frump, the new Managing Director of Volvo Car Malaysia.
Similar concept in other countries
Volvo SELEKT was launched in 2020 and follows a similar concept in some other countries. Once qualified for the programme, the pre-owned vehicle will receive a 125-point inspection and have its software upgraded to the latest versions so the engine will function optimally. Genuine Volvo parts will be used for any parts that need to be replaced. Most importantly, all the services and upgrades will be conducted by trained Volvo technicians who would know the cars best.
