Aisin Warner makes the 5-speed adaptive automatic and 5-speed adaptive Geartronic for the new 60/70 series Volvo's. This includes the 2.4, 2.4T, and T5. The S80 uses a GM 4-speed adaptive automatic and 4-speed adaptive Geartronic transmission, which is also the shortest transmission in the world.<P>-Drew<p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 05-11-2001).]

Do we have any info on this tranny? Is it made specifically for the Volvo, or are other auto makers using it as well?<P>Thanks again<BR>K

funny you should mention this...as I was cleaning my engine the other day I was surprised to see "made in Japan" clearly stamped on the side of the tranny. Thanks for asking the question

Fortunatly for Volvo, GM makes some of the best tranmissions in the world, and BMW makes good use of them.<P>-Drew<p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 05-12-2001).]
