2nd rebuilt transmission replacement went bad after about 30 miles...towed back to original repair shop...tranny replaced again (transmission #4). Paid $40.00 to flush coling system.
I purchased this car in Nov 2010. It is again in the same shop for the 5th time...to replace the transmission. Yes, this will be the 5th time the transmission has been replaced. They can't seem to get it right...towed 5 times.
The 5th transmission is now slipping, just like all the others...only a matter of time...yet another tow expense...I will soon be trding this vehicle in...days with Volvo are about over...(and with my local auto repairman as well).
Transmission Service Urgent code. S1 code suggests Shift Solenoid problem. Replaced and problem still exists, mechanic says transmission needs replacement. Couldn't have told me $400 earlier, now I have new solenoid and no tranny. DO NOT BUY A VOLVO!
The car would not shift. Cable had broken inside. Replaced with used shifter
