One of the cornerstones of Volvo’s safety thinking is regarding the car as a system, where every part interacts with other parts in a specific model to create a complete unit that works optimally.
The Volvo ownership experience is made up of many parts. Some are obvious. Some are not. If you think about it, you probably wouldn't want your workshop to exchange the Genuine Parts that make your Volvo a Volvo, for something else that is not 100% guaranteed to support original safety and quality.
What you'd probably want is to have your Volvo professionally serviced, with Volvo Genuine Parts, the only spare parts that are always guaranteed to carry the same uncompromising promise as the car itself. Parts that you know have been designed, tested and manufactured according to Volvo's detailed specifications, in order to interact optimally with all the other parts in the different systems of the car.
Peace of mind for owners of older Volvo cars
No one knows how far a Volvo can go. The current Guinness World Record 'Highest Car Mileage' is held by a 1966 Volvo P1800, which has covered more than 3,572,342 km! Keeping a car in shape for such a mileage calls for a secure supply of spare parts, just like Genuine Classic Parts.
That's why owners of older discontinued Volvos all over the world can order parts from their regular Volvo dealers to ensure the original performance of their car. In fact, since material technologies evolved over the years, the parts delivered today actually have a higher quality than when the car was in production. For example, synthetic rubber is replacing natural rubber, providing a higher resistance against oil and UV rays.
Seymour Horwell is a totally independent business supplying Genuine Volvo Parts but is also able to access a wider choice of alternative and genuine parts at competitive prices if requested. Of course, no workshop is effective without a comprehensive stock of parts. At Seymour Horwell, the parts department holds a considerable stock of Volvo parts and is kept busy not only keeping the workshop supplied, but we also supply the trade all over Devon with a choice of genuine and/or pattern parts also stocking many parts for older models some of which are no longer available from Volvo, which we frequently dispatch worldwide.
