  1. I have a 2006 V70R, Love it. Don't love the transmission, however. After a valve body swap 2 years ago, was absolutely perfect for 500 miles. Then blew up. Got a "remanufactured" transmission (which has maybe 5,000 miles), never has been quite right, getting worse, bought a used 2006 R transmission on ebay, took it to my mechanic here in San Antonio, who told me: "The transmission you bought may or may not work, each individual car has it's own control unit specific down to the individual unit" I seriously doubt that, any comment? Will a $5000.00 from a dealer be my only salvation? help!!
