Work on it yourself!!!

2001 Volvo V70 T5 Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)


This is a good car that gets a bad rap. The tranny has a $19 fix from IPD to fix the hard into and out of 3rd shifts, and missing 3rd all together. The ETM should be replaced with one from xemodex in Canada. They have a mod that turns them into a lifetime unit. Although it is $550. Those two things will cover 90% of the complaints.
