    Default transmission

    Has any one any thing good to say about 2004 V70 5 speed transmissions as
    most all I see is $$$$$ and class actions mine is ok and has been changed
    twice recently to rid the tranny of a dark colour fluid but I am nervous ?.
    The first change was when the solenoids were done before purchase and I have
    done it once .I just bought it .
    I intend to change the oil every 20 k as it seems the cheaper choice .Mobil
    3309 full synthetic .
    Love the car but the turning circle is hard to get used to after my 1990 740
    t which is perfect in every way just I needed a wagon .
    Looks like a hard job to fit on a tranny cooler .

    Get rid of it and fit a manual transmission. Problem solved!
