I have a 2001 V70XC with 162k miles and a dead transmission. The car is in good condition, although it's only worth about $2.5k. The local transmission repair shops in Northern Virginia are all asking between $3.5 and $4k for a new transmission. Given the age of the car and the cost to repair, I'm inclined to get rid of the vehicle despite the emotional attachment.

Any suggestions for a cheap (under $2k) repair would be appreciated before I ride her off into the sunset.

Depends on how bad it is.
Many times a new valvebody will fix it, but with those miles I'm pretty sure a lot of other internal parts are just plain worn out!

Pre 2002 volvos are not worth it. (speaking about P2's of course)
