  • Volvo announces that customers can now swap or bow out of the Care by Volvo service after only four months instead of the original 12 months.
  • While vehicle churn may likely increase, Volvo says that customers will only receive new vehicles during each swap.
  • Turned-in Volvos will be added to a dealership’s pre-owned inventory.

For fans of having a new car every few months, Volvo’s Care by Volvo subscription service just got more intriguing. The automaker now allows those subscribed to its service to swap vehicles every four months. So if you start off with an XC40 and decide four months later you’d rather be cruising in an S60 sedan, you can do so. Customers can also cancel the service after four months.

The shortened timetable could woo more customers to the service especially those in areas where a sedan might be nice in the summer, but the winter months could call for the more robust SUV. Although, all four vehicles available in the service are all-wheel-drive equipped.

Care by Volvo is the automaker's subscription service. The monthly rate includes the vehicle, maintenance, and insurance. Its initial launch was so popular it overwhelmed the company, which led to delays.

Even with the relatively quick swap-out timeline, Volvo told Car and Driver that Care by Volvo customers will always get a new vehicle and that as vehicles are turned in they will be added to a retailer’s pre-owned inventory.
