S80 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,989 miles
Failure of 2002 Volvo S-80 transmission with only 46,000 miles but 10 months out of warranty (4 year/ 50000 miles). Dealer found code 5300, tcm 0008. Found internal hydraulic fault in transmission. Shift solenoid S1 replaced transmission. A deal was worked out where Volvo, the dealer and myself each paid 1/3 the cost of $4200. General manager of dealership told me that "Volvo knows they have problem with S-80 transmission".
