Sorry
GT

Ah yes.......GirlTronic.


But seriously, most flashed 04/05 GT's have held up......provided the transmission fluid is flushed regulary (perhaps 20K-30K intervals).

FV-QR

Everytime I say/post that it's not stick, I get embarassed... but I got a great deal on the car and had no intentions of keeping it this long (great deal 9 months ago... isn't exactly a great deal anymore!)

Re: FV-QR (Pure Euro)

dont fret. alot of nice sporty cars dont even come in manual stateside.

There was the same thread started not too long ago and alot of people chimed in, and no one had a failure and they had alot of miles.

Tiptronic was Porsche's version of geartronic that Volvo has.

I think sticks suck. Seriously, I think most mature members on here recognize that these are outstanding automobiles, stick or not.

Great... I just peeked over 50k miles and, with the economy, see myself holding on to this thing for a while...

Is that a BAD thing?

You can't seriously say that a standard isn't more fun to drive, gives better control to the driver and in most cases, faster. Maybe I'm just jealous. I wish my GT was a stick anyway.
Yeah, I own a GT, but like someone else mentioned, I got a deal I couldn't pass up. I do love mine, just wish I had the standard.

Regardless, I know this topic is somewhat regular, but as I add mods to mine, I'm glad to continue to hear from people with miles confirming their GT transmissions are holding up.

Wait.....

what?!?!

Are you on Quaaludes?

They still make those?? I guess if I had some, I would definitely want the GT, but as I am sure they are long gone, I will get my thrills from a MT.

Volvo's AT sucks (including GT). The manuals are stronger than most MT out there if not the strongest (since m56, m59 , m66,.... think the strongest boxes out there).
WHY? the AT are not made by Volvo (GT made by GETRAG (wikipedia is wrong on this one
) the other AT's made by AW).... the M-serie is

Er, pretty sure the GT is an AW-55, Aswin-Warner, no?

How does the transmission hold up to the upped torque?
do the ipd that removes the tq limiter. There is a guy here in atlanta that has one of the most modded S60R Gt's there is and is still on his orginal tranny. He has been modded for over 140,000 miles. No issues as of yet.

HA! Nah, but sticks do suck, at least for city driving around here.
