      Couple of things here. First, you’re confusing the fluid counter with transmission adaptives. The fluid counter simply tracks the age of the fluid; how many heat cycles, etc. It has nothing to do...

      The almost-stopped downshift bump is actually the result of a SW update. Volvo changed the downshift threshold from 4 mph to 1 mph, because some customers were complaining of feeling the downshift. ...

      Honestly, I don’t *see* any actual bends. The car had a bad shake when we bought it, and we were told a few were bent. After 4 new wheels right from Volvo, she still wasn’t overly smooth. Still...

      Yeah, I hear ya. Wife’s XC90 has a leak at the flex pipe. Looks like Walker (not preferred) and Magnaflow are the least expensive options. Not sure if the catalyst used in either will keep the...

      ^This. :D

      The Virgo is one of the coolest wheels Volvo ever made. They look great on the 700 series too, my Dad and brother ran them on an ‘84 760T.

      Know this thread is a few months old, but do either of you run the Cooper CS5 on the XC60 in particular? Sorry to ask a seemingly dumb question, but with no signatures I wasn’t sure what models you...

      That’s a shame. I can relate, there are definitely good and bad techs out there. :(

      The abrupt stopping is likely due to TOO much vacuum since the pump is running nonstop. Like you said, they do...

      The pressure switches do fail, and the pump will usually run continuously as a fail-safe. How long until it arrives?

      If you’re worried about burning the new pump (which is a legitimate fear),...

      I don’t think there’s much you can do, they’re aware of my dissatisfaction and don’t seem the least bit concerned. Replied to your PM, thanks.

      Yeah well, there’s a reason for that. I’m glad you had a good experience, but many don’t.

      Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there are still good ones out there. When I was a dealer tech, I used to...

      They’re only meant to illuminate when opening the door. ‘14- models have them on continuously as ambient lighting. If you find a way to do this on a ‘13, I’d be interested. Along with the white...

      My dealer has a brochure on why OEM glass is required, and that is one of the items. Not saying it’s gospel, since they’re trying to sell glass too, I’m sure. :D

      As mentioned above, I’d try the...

      All correct. The counter simply tracks how many times the trans has been hot, etc. I’ve flushed the transmission in our XC90 twice now in the 100k we’ve had it, and have never reset the counter as I...

      The orange stuff? That’s what I’d always used in my S70 too, never had it freeze. Want to get some in my XC, the blue stuff that came in it always turns the whole front end blue. :(

      -UPDATE-

      Prop shaft seems to have fixed the vibration in the seat, will tell for sure after a few days. The steering wheel vibration, on the other hand, is unaltered. No better, no worse.

      Not to threadjack, but it’s interesting you mention glass. My XC60 has a small spot on the rear window where it doesn’t defrost (center, approx 1/3 way down the glass). Obviously, replacing the glass...
