    I have this same exact vehicle (2004 V70A). Does it feel like a transmission issue (slippage or not downshifting), or a lack of fuel thing or a turbo thing (slow spin up)?

    Check the tires. A faulty/damaged tire can lead to symptoms as well. Rotate the back and front is a cheap way to see if there's an issue.

    Try slamming the hood (drop it from a good distance). Seriously. This resolved the issue on the wife's 05 XC. Something was sticking and the height of the drop shook it loose.

    Well, in Jim's defense, the only reason you read that with sarcasm is because you've seen it before. If that was your aunt writing the reply, you probably would have read it differently...

    I use the kind that push onto the vents, since the vents are angled perfectly. This is simple and cheap: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01AOV4UXC and holds up to a 5.5" phone.

    Another thumb up for the RT43. Wife's are 4 years old with about 30K on them on the '06 XC and might make another (mild) winter.

    Put them on my MIL's Hyundai too - she is very happy with them.
