    There is a TSB out from Volvo to fix transmission shifting problems by updating the TCM's software.
    You need to take it to a Volvo specialty shop who has DICE diag. system or to the dealership to have this done.
    Here is a reference:

    A/T Controls - TCM Updates For Various Issues/DTC's
    Transmission Control Module (TCM), Software (SW)
