You are in the Volvo C70
What is this discussion about?
Volvo C70, Saab 9-3, Coupe, Convertible

Automatics seem to have more "turbo lag" because of the stall setting on the torque converter. Mechanically, this is something very easy to fix, but probably pretty costly on either the Volvo or the Saab.
#13 of 13 C70 Transmission Failure
May 25, 2008 (3:38 pm)
Have a 1998 C70 Coupe. The automatic transmission is failing at 66.000 miles. My Volvo mechanic wants to replace it with a new one at a cost of $4,000! I feel I am being taken for an (expensive) ride. Does anybody have some suggestions ? Can this transmission be reworked by an independent shop ? What should I expect as a reasonable cost for this?
