Volvo S60 Problem Report
Volvo S60 Automatic Transmission May Have Shifting Problems
Problems have been reported with the automatic transmission. Our technicians recommend complete diagnoses before beginning any repairs.
Downshifts 2/1 are very hard and makes a "clunking" sound when slowing with a hot transmission (it's smooth when cold). Dealer and transmission specialist advised this transmission is known for sticking pistons and solenoids when hot. Only solution is trying a replacement valve body (about $2000) or a rebuilt transmission ($4000-6000). Dealer tried fluid change, software check and adaptation delete, but it only helped for a few days, then it was back to hard downshifts. - bobinyelm
