I have a 2007 s80 v8 awd with 103, 000 miles that I acquired from an independent dealer 3 weeks ago. The first couple of days I had the car it was shifting really crazy. Lots of hard downshifts and a few not so smooth upshifts, but no slippage. I stopped at the local Volvo dealer and told them what the car was doing and they told me it was completely normal and that it would smooth out the shifts as it "adapted to my driving style". I had never heard of this before and was a bit skeptical. However, I did not purchase the car from this dealer and he had no reason to lie to me. I must say after 2 more weeks of driving (about 500 miles) the shifts have smoothed out considerably. Has anyone else ever had this experience after the purchase of a used s80? Is the dealer crazy or is this really how the car should behave? Thoughts?
