I have a 2001 S60 2.4T and I have experienced the same problems and had the dealer do the same software upgrades. The first time they did the upgrade it seemed to smooth out the problem but then it came back. So when it happened again I took it in and they said that took out the Neutral function which was causing the problem (another software fix). The only other thing would be with the transmission, I had a bad seal or something that they had to fix so have them look at the transmission.

Very easy...when you open your trunk there is a turn knob to open and expose the entire light harness. The harness is clipped into fixture so you will have to squeeze the clips and just pull out the harness and switch out the bulb. The bulbs don't just pull out you have to turn it in a clockwise fashion and then it will release. Just do the opposite to put the new bulb in.

I have about 13 months left on my 2001 S60 2.4T before the warranty runs out...how much does a VIP warranty cost?

Thanks for the scoop on the taillight cluster - I have mislaid my manual.
As to the warranty it has also to be purchased before the earlier of 50,000 miles are up or four years*. The cost is about $2700. I purchased a cheaper warranty (with a deductible) from Warranty Direct as I had a lease. If you have a lease there is a Catch 22 situation with Volvo - on the one hand I had to purchase the Volvo Warranty before the start of the last month* of the lease - on the other hand Volvo wouldnt tell me what the purchase price would be until DURING the last month......They turned down my bid price but I ended up buying the car at lease end but had to go elsewhere for a warranty. .

I am afraid that upon opening the trunk I can see nothing, no "turn knob" no nothing!.

Yes, the incentive is likely to be renewed. You should be able to get at least the carsdirect price, but most dealers will agree to $300 over invoice less the incentive, which is almost $2000 under invoice, and no doc fees.

I've had a T5 for about 4 months now, and have been using premium as recommended, but since gas is over $3 a gallon here in Northern California, I'm wondering the same thing!

I've owned an S60 T5 since Oct 2004; and have used regular unleaded gasoline in it regularly. I haven't noticed any discernible difference vs. premium. I can't speak to the long-term effects as I only have 24,000 miles on it.

the cars computer will detune the engine with the regular gas. You will get lower performance and gas mileage.

"the cars computer will detune the engine with the regular gas. You will get lower performance and gas mileage."
IF the cars computer does "detune" the engine then when the correct gas is used wouldn't the computer adjust the tuning accordingly?.
