Re: New tranny / head gasket needed for 2004 XC90 T6 (kevinG)

Quote, originally posted by kevinG »
I have a friend whose 2004 T6 needs a new tranny and head gasket. He took his car in for regular service, and voila - need new transmission! He has 40K miles on the car. He said the dealership was not surprised. The good news is Volvo is doing all the work under warranty. And, he gets a loaner while it is completed.

I saw this happened to other T6's in the thread: http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=51262

A couple questions:
1) is this directly related to the T6/4 speed? Or will 2.5T/5 speeds also have this problem? My 2.5T has done well so far.
2) Should he consider extending the Volvo warranty? How long is the warranty on new/rebuilt transmissions?
3) Are there confidential trade in programs for T6 owners? Perhaps to get them into a V8?

Cheers


My 05 T6 had a head gasket replacement a few months back. If we end up keeping it in the long run, we'll buy the extended warranty. It only has 12k miles right now though and runs great.

The trans has been very strong so far.

If it breaks under warranty, Volvo will fix it.


I'm not worried.

In regards to "confidential trade in programs"....I really doubt it.

There are A LOT of XC90 T6's out there that have perfectly happy owners. You make it sound like an epidemic or something.

I dont mean to sound harsh... Just my .02 cents.
