He have a deal with Volvo N.America, can have any work done at any Volvo Dealer in U.S. and not pay a penny Is on Volvo, this way they keep record on the odo.
Question, the odometer on that car turns over every 99,999 miles (it has 5 digits). How do they validate the actual mileage on the car? Since there is no computer to go in and pull mileage from. He claims he does all of the oil changes and brake maintenance on the car so that would negate a check of every 3 months. So I'm assuming he must bring the car into Volvoville at least once a year to have work done on the car and check the odometer?

Volvos philosophy, “If we support the car, then people would think that with such resources, anyone could keep their car going for millions and millions of miles ... However, what you (me) have done and keep on doing is to show everyone that anyone can keep a Volvo going for millions and millions of miles by just following simple service schedules and purchasing replacement parts from over the counter at their local Volvo dealer.”

Yeah, I'm fairly certain given the various interviews and statements from both VCNA, Volvo and Irv that Volvo isn't providing free maintenance for the P1800. That said, they have given him two cars now for free. So whether or not you want to see it as Volvo supporting him or not you can draw your own conclusions.
Although Irv loves to tease Volvo for not giving him so much as a box of air filters for his car, he points out that he has received two new cars from the automaker: a 780 Bertone Coupe in 1987, and a C70 Coupe in 2002.

As for those who would call him a "douche," I don't know where you are getting that idea at all. Irv is a nice enough guy, maybe you just are t mature enough to interact with someone his age.
Bring on the RWD hate.
