#1 of 4 C70 Transmission failure
May 25, 2008 (2:42 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?

Go to a actual transmission shop. Mine is the valve body and yes it can be reworked by an independent shop. Good luck.

I have a 2002 C70, with an auto trans. I am getting severe hesitation and jerking on the highway when I accelerate (even mildly). Can someone help point me in the right direction to fix this? Thanks.
