Just purchased an 06 electric blue s60r no problems when i test drove it. I got it home and went out for a bit when i would launch it in first the front tires would spin but the backs wouldn't, even happened in second once. From what i have read online the most frequent thing i read about is the angle gear. Car is under warranty just wondering if anyone else has had similar problem.

yes sonic blue and you can but if only the front tires are spinning something is wrong with the awd i fear.

You said under warranty so get that fixed ASAP. Could easily get up to $4000-$6000 depending on what's going on.

Likely the spline coupler. Most common failure.

I used to have an '04 VR and the angle gear failed at around 70k miles (only front tires would provide traction) - and was replaced under warranty. Volvo had since updated the parts for newer P2.

I now have an '07 VR and soon after I bought it (Dec '11) I noticed that the front tires would spin while the rear did nothing. Couldn't even get out of a parking space in winter. My first thought: NOT AGAIN! But turns out it's just the DEM and all it took was a reset (also under warranty). Easy fix.
