i work for a friends used car dealership in maine. we have alot of volvos in and out of here either for sale or getting worked on. we sold a V70 R not too longago.... and we have never seen or heard of this.<p>we picked up a 2006 S60 R Bright blue with the factory aero kit. and its an automatic.<br>drives flawless for a 100k car BUT when we drive it after a while and punch it from a stop chirps 2nd and 3rd and acts like it misses 4th.....<p>the person who owned it before had put a cold air intake on it and took very good care of it from what we have seen so far.... are these <br>-transmisions electronic?<p>-could he have put a chip in the trans?<p>-or is the trans junk?<p>regardless we will problly send it to a dealer but i want a good idea of what could be wrong before we own the car for tooooo much. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0">

So - from a stop - you gun it, it shifts normally 2nd and 3rd then feels like it shifts directly to 5th?<p>You may want to try the R forum as well:<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zeroforum?id=51" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zeroforum?id=51</A><br>

also when you say "bright blue" I assume you mean Sonic Blue?<p>These did not come with the Volvo kit from the factory, but were added aftermarket.<p>It could be modded more heavily than it seems on the surface.

there were a FEW owned by VCNA that had the kit on them and many were added by the dealers - but none came off the boat like that.<p>It does not sound like the adaptations were set by a tune or anything along those lines. Tranny might just need a good flush.
