While looking at some used cars I happened to find a one owner 2003 XC70 with just under 90,000 on it. The car looks great and I'm familiar with most of the potential Volvo issues but I'm a little unclear about where the 2003 XC falls on the whole AW55-50SN good solenoid bushings/bad solenoid bushings thing. I had a 2002 V70 that I bought used with around 150k on it that gave me a quick lesson about "service free" transmissions and soft solenoid bushings (it had hesitation and flares, but after a quick solenoid service with a $58 TransGo kit it was fine). I learned quite a bit about these transmissions and the main source of their problems but during that process it was never clear to me when the solenoid bushing material was improved. Are 2001-2002 transmissions the problem years or do 2003's have the same problem? I'm not concerned about doing another VB rebuild but if it's something that I should be thinking about I'd like to bring it up with the dealer during negotiations, if i get to that point.
