About 2 weeks ago, I heard a sound like I had run over something metal on the road, which in hindsight may have been something blowing off my drivetrain, followed by a strange feeling in my driveline (when accelerating) which lasted for about 15 minutes.<p>The next morning, when pulling out of my local gas station onto Rt. 206 south, I noticed that the front wheels completely broke loose. Then, experimenting a bit, I found that I could break them loose very easily from a dead stop, at any point in first gear, and under WOT in 2nd gear.<p>I took my car into Red Bank Volvo yesterday (who has the most AMAZING service department) and it seems that there is some sort of viscious coupling and electronic controller that went bad, and my car is truly operating as a front wheel drive only vehicle for the time being.<p>That being said, it's actually much faster than stock if you can hook it up without burning the tires off! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Anyone else ever have similar problems? I'm racking up the miles like crazy (30K on a 2005) and am definitely going to spring for the extended warranty when I get to about 47K miles.
