Volvo Personal Service
Taunton Motor Company have recently passed their certification for Volvo Personal Service, so what does this mean for you?
We believe servicing your car should be simple. So we’ve reinvented the traditional idea of a workshop visit. By consigning old working methods to the past, we’ve created a new approach to service that’s faster, more efficient, and which takes care of you as well as it takes care of your car.
A faster, simpler service
Now, our expert technicians work in teams – like a racing car pit stop – which means most services will be completed within the hour. So, you might as well just wait and relax while we work.
Make the best use of your time
While you’re waiting for you car, you’re welcome to use our Living Room. A comfortable lounge with free Wi-Fi, refreshments, and magazines—everything you need to help make the best use of your time. And before you know it, your car will be serviced, washed, and ready to get back out on the road.
Personal Service Technician
Our ’Designed Around You’ philosophy ensures our customers enjoy a more personalised ownership experience. The role of a Volvo Personal Service Technician is to bring this unique, personalised approach into our workshop.
To help create a closer personal relationship with our customers, Volvo Personal Service Technicians are responsible for each stage of the customer workshop experience: from arranging service bookings and taking delivery of the customer’s car, to performing the service or repair, before finally preparing and clearly explaining the customer’s invoice.

Volvo Cars endorses G7 Ocean Plastics Charter supporting its industry-leading commitment to reducing plastics pollution
Volvo Cars last week joined the G7 Ocean Partnership Summit, one of the most important environmental summits in the world. Volvo Cars is the only car maker to be invited to the G7 summit, underlining the company's position as an industry leader in sustainability.
The summit in Halifax, Canada, brings together governments, businesses and NGOs. Volvo Cars will explicitly endorse and support the G7 Ocean Plastics Charter and will present its own sustainability programme in detail, including its recent Plastics Vision that aims to substantially increase the amount of recycled material used in new Volvo cars.
Volvo Cars has one of the most ambitious sustainability programmes in the automotive industry, with the explicit goal of reducing and minimising its overall environmental impact. Reducing plastics pollution and working towards the use of more recycled materials in its cars is an important element of that strategy.
The G7 charter commits governments to take concrete and ambitious steps towards addressing the global problem of ocean plastics pollution, such as promoting more recycled plastics and reducing plastics pollution in their societies. Volvo Cars is the first and only car maker to endorse the charter.
XC60 takes Towcar of the Year title as Volvo enjoys quadruple success in Caravan and Motorhome Club awards
Volvo has demonstrated the strength in depth of its SUV range with the XC40 and XC60 together winning four honours in the 2019 Caravan and Motorhome Club Towcar of the Year Competition. The honours, including the overall Towcar of the Year award for the XC60, were presented at a ceremony held at the RAC Club in London.
The Volvos were among 35 vehicles tested by expert judges at the Millbrook proving ground in Bedfordshire. Each car was checked by the club's technical team before being put through their paces by a specialist driving team. Performance was tested and each vehicle's 'caravanability' was assessed, taking into account factors such as the boot space available to carry kit, accessories for a caravan trip and the towball height.
Assessing the XC60, the judges declared they were impressed by the car's "outstanding performance" in terms of acceleration, braking and stability when towing a caravan, showing perfect poise and minimal body roll when towing both at high speeds and on twisty routes. "It also gave one of the most comfortable rides of the entire competition – all in all an ideal car for caravanners," they added.
Polestar Cyan Racing and Thed Bjork crowned WTCC Champions
Volvo Cars, Polestar and Cyan Racing claim their first motorsport world titles at the FIA World Touring Car Championship. With Polestar Cyan Racing claiming the manufacturer title, alongside Thed Bjork clinching the driver champion title, the first ever Swedish racing World Champion.
Polestar Cyan Racing won the manufacturer’s award at the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) late last week, with a 28.5 point lead over nearest rival, Honda. Polestar Cyan Racing’s Thed Bjork emerged as driver champion with a matching number of points over his nearest competitor, Norbert Michelisz, after two flawless races.
“We entered the championship last year with a five-year plan to become World Champions. We did it in just two years. We have exceeded all of our expectations and goals this season,” said Alexander Murdzevski Schedvin, Head of Motorsport at Polestar. “Thed Björk has done an awesome job this season and is a worthy champion. The team has put down thousands and thousands of hours to claim the World Title, I can’t thank them enough. This is the proudest moment in the history of our team and I am so proud to be able to say that we are the World Champions!”
Fellow Polestar Cyan Racing drivers Nicky Catsburg and Yvan Muller finished in the top 10 for both final races of the season, earning vital points for the team.
“Thed has really earned this World Title and the team has done a great job this season. We had a good final race weekend of the season and we managed to fulfil the goals we had set up ahead of it. I am proud of everyone in the team,” said Yvan Muller.
Congratulations to the team, a fantastic result and a testament to Volvo's developments over recent years!
