Hi, new to this forum and Volvo in general. Purchased a used 03 XC90 T6 about two months ago with 140,000 miles on the odometer. Everything was fine until about a week ago when I started to hear a intermittent knock while driving. The knock sounded like it is coming from the right front of the car. I first took it to a repair shop and they noticed oil leaking from the front of the transaxle and said to take it to a transmission shop to get it looked at further. I took it to an indie transmission repair shop and they stated that the front transaxle is shot and will need to be replaced. They quoted me 2500 dollars for a rebuilt unit and if I pay an extra 500 dollars they will go through the transmission and refresh it since they will have it out of the car as well. My question is should I go with a rebuilt unit or a new transaxle from Volvo. The car in general seems in very good shape and I only paid 2300 dollars for the car. I am also wondering if I should even keep the car after reading the many issues with 03 T6 transmissions. The transmission shop did state they found no issues with the transmission. Opinions needed.
