Anyone else experiencing this?

90 V8 06

Coming to a light at about 15mph cruising speed and you gently apply the brakes the car jerks you forward as it shifts (slams) back into second.

I have also had the car staying in first up to about 3500 rpm while driving slow through neighborhoods, etc. and then jamming into 2nd.

3300 miles... I hope I am having tranny problems. They will probably say that my stereo caused an uneven balance in the harmonic distortion stabilizer inside the tranny's flux capacitor and therefore it isnt covered.

Re: Rough upshift into first while rolling to stop... (XC902Quick)

I am sorry that I don't have anything constructive to offer, but I had to say that "flux capacitor" made me laugh! Good luck the the transmission issues...

We are having similar issues, including some sporadic gear change
slippage in moderate throttle applications. I thought it was just me

Re: Rough upshift into first while rolling to stop... (XC902Quick)

I am having a simular issue. While slowing down and shifting into second gear, it seems to "slam" into second. It is really bad when you use the geartronic (which I use quite often). I am planning on having the dealer look at it at my 15,000 service. I had them look at it at the 7500 mile service and they told me that it took a software download but didn't describe the download that it took. But it didn't help anyways.

BTW, I have the 2.5T and not the V8. Just an FYI.

Too funny...I just watched Back to the Future III with my 8 year old son last night. The original was best though!

Good luck with your tranny issues. Just drop it off at the dealer.

I have had this happen a couple of times and brought it up during the Volvo (factory) customer service survey a few months after I purchased the car. It has only happended a couple of times and I haven't taken it in since it hasn't happened in a couple of months. I have had my XC90 V8(2006) in two times for the "CHECK ENGINE" light. First time they did nothing but reset the light and I asked them why they didn't do the software upgrade and was told ther wasn't a software upgrade. I told them they were wrong and two days later the light was back on and I take it back, pick it up the next day, and guess what they did? Software upgrade, so hopefully this will fix the problem.
