Welcome to the Volvo Owners' Club
The Volvo Owners Club has been around since 1962 so we know about the Volvo brand, its heritage and why they earned the reputation for safety and longevity.
Our name, experience and reputation and the Volvo brand are the reasons we have around 3000 members. Although Volvo cars earned the reputation of longevity, it is possibly the experience, dedication and expert advice from the Club and members that has helped preserve the old models that are still often used daily, and now apply for the more recent and newer models.
Times are changing and the technology in cars is very sophisticated. Air conditioning, electronics and turbos are now common in many of the newer models, and their numbers in the Club are growing. The newer and younger members now have these cars that are less than 10 years old and affordable. We even have the more recent models such as the new sporty Volvo S40 and S60, V60 and XC60 range.
Regardless of your choice of Volvo model, we're sure you'll find something for your needs within our Club services today.
And much more.
Members of the Volvo Owners Club have certain pages they alone can access and require a password. This is sent on joining and changed with each publication of the club magazine. We also have a Newsletter by email to keep members up-to-date on all things Volvo of anything important or of special interest between magazine issues.
