    Hello all,

    Just got a quote at the local Monro Auto shop for replacement of all 4 shocks/struts


    What have others paid for this job?

    Thanks,
  3. what a great post, even if it is in German

    it was fun to watch the Allroad kick the XC70's behind.

    I'm actually surprised the Volvo made it up the hill as far as it did as I consider my 2002 V70XC to be more of a front wheel drive car...

    75K miles on our 2002 XC tranny

    75K miles on our 2002 XC tranny and it continues to run fine.

    I've had the fluid changed 3 times, and the ECU reflashed each time updated software has come out.

    Didn't you ask for an estimate?

    BTW, my stealership reset the SRS light I set off installing the USA-Spec connector as a part of my $1,500 60K service.

    Put 4 snows with different rims

    We had a S60 AWD with 17" wheels at our VT house that was absolutely fantastic in the snow - with a 16" set of wheels and narrow diameter snow tires.

    The 17 or 18" wheels quickly get packed with...

    Since we've just used up our second set of STRs at 75K, I'm in the market for tires.

    Interestingly, selecting 225-60-16 on tirerack.com results in 111 tires. Selecting 215-65-16 (the stock size)...

    I learned this the hard way. When I removed the stereo to install my USA Spec Aux-In / Ipod adapter I disconnected the Climate Control Module. If you disconnect the Climate Control Module, the...

    Well, just got my bill. $1505.88

    Pretty expensive for a 60K service (at 74k miles) if you ask me!

    Sounds like the dealer goes over the car with a fine tooth comb and they found several things.

    Thanks

    Interesting that when my tranny was acting up at about 45K miles, the tranny flush under warranty and a ECU reflash made a world of difference.

    Given how finnicky the tranny seems to be, I've got...

    I think part of the problem here is Volvo USA's pricing. $299 / month for a 2007 XC70 is a pretty darn good deal. Don't forget you are competing with the manufacturer to sell your used rig. That...

    USA Spec

    Exactly my issue - opposite corners spinning

    I was offroading on a mild slope, and the opposite corners were not getting much traction. So little traction in fact, that I got stuck. I guess with no active or semi-active differential lock,...

    Please, let us know what happens

    I treat our 2002 V70XC as if it were a front wheel drive car, as I've been let down by the AWD function when offroading before.

    Good luck!

    Gibbons has the answer!

    I've been thinking of buying the USA-Spec iPod adapter for my 2002 V70XC to provide a line-in for my Sirius satellite radio.

    I've got the Sportster and it has a mini-jack line-out on the back. ...
