Customer/Sponsor Obligations and Rules
A PIN Sponsor is defined as the eligible A-Plan participant. Sponsors may purchase the vehicle themselves or generate PIN numbers for eligible immediate family members. Sponsors are responsible for managing their PIN allocation, and helping to ensure that customers follow the rules. If a customer fails to follow the rules, (including the length of ownership requirement) the sponsor’s plan eligibility may be at risk. Vehicles purchased or leased by customers sponsored by an employee, retiree, or surviving spouse, will count against the total number of vehicles that may be sponsored during a given calendar year. If after ordering a vehicle under the terms of the new vehicle purchase program, the customer cannot take delivery from the designated Volvo Dealer, the customer must promptly advise a sales representative.
Dealership Obligations and Rules
Participating Volvo Dealers agree to comply with all of the terms outlined under this A-Plan by Volvo program. Authorized Volvo Dealers are encouraged, but not required, to participate in the A Plan by Volvo program. All customers will receive an A-Plan by Volvo “Pricing Agreement” which will identify the A-Plan purchase price, the price of each dealer-added option, any negative equity on the trade-in unit, gifts, and any other allowable fees and taxes. A copy of the factory invoice, showing the vehicle purchase program price will also be provided. The A-Plan by Volvo Pricing Agreement must be signed by the Dealer and the customer, and a copy provided to the customer.
A-Plan by Volvo sponsors may not accept referral fees, under any circumstances.
Volvo Dealers will be permitted to charge up to $100.00 in documentary fees, on each delivery to an eligible purchaser, under the terms of the A-Plan by Volvo program unless otherwise prohibited by state and local laws, or statutory regulations. Each Dealer is responsible for complying with their respective applicable laws or regulations.
Financing, Insurance, Titles and Taxes
Purchase/lease financing may be obtained at the customer’s discretion from any source. Each vehicle purchased or leased, will be covered by the same warranty as those sold to retail customers. The customer is responsible for all federal, state, and local taxes, license and title fees. Non-eligible family members may appear as co-signers or co-makers of the loan or other financing agreement, and may also appear as co-owners on the Vehicle Title or Registration. However, the primary user of the vehicle must be the A-Plan eligible member. A-Plan program customers are required to provide their own liability and collision insurance for both purchases and leases.
Titling eligibility is as follows
Vehicles must be retained in the customer’s possession and registered as provided above for at least six months from the date of purchase or lease.
Vehicles must be registered or titled to the A-Plan eligible individual. Non-eligible members may appear as co-signers or co-makers of the loan or other financing agreement, and may also appear on the Vehicle Title or Registration. However, the primary user of the vehicle must be the A-Plan by Volvo eligible member. Vehicles also may be registered in the name of a customer’s trust provided that the customer’s name is included in the name of the trust, i.e. “John Smith Trust.”
A-Plan vehicles may be registered or titled in the name of a business (excluding automotive dealerships and their leasing companies). A-Plan vehicles may be purchased or leased for commercial use.
