So I saw that Volvo changed the 5 speed auto to a stronger 6 speed auto on the 2006 models. But what else did they change ? Did they change anything with the engine to prevent the block from cracking or anything like that ?<p>Thanks

The catch: there is no badging on the SE so you're not really sure if you have one.

After a recent post I found out that the '06 GT received a beefier angle gear. The MT did not.

We all know what happened to that car, and it wasn't an issue with a cracked block.
