Irvine, CA (Sept. 2, 2004) --- Many lives have been changed because of Hurricane Charley. To help people rebuild, Volvo Cars of North America, LLC (VCNA), is offering special vehicle replacement assistance to people whose vehicles were damaged by the destructive hurricane.
"Our mission at Volvo Cars is to deliver beyond what is normally expected by a car company," says Vic Doolan, VCNA President and CEO. "With Care by Volvo at the heart of everything we do, we are pleased to provide vehicle replacement assistance for the victims of Hurricane Charley."
Through this special program, Volvo customers can receive an assistance of $1,000 towards the replacement of a vehicle that was damaged by the hurricane. The assistance is available to eligible customers who purchase or lease a new model year 2004 or 2005 Volvo from now until September 30, 2004. This offer may be combined with current published programs.
"It is our sincere hope that this assistance will help our customers through this very difficult time," adds Doolan.
Only customers with a State of Florida address will be deemed eligible for the program. Customers must show documentation to confirm a damaged vehicle.
