transmission shifts rough

3 Answers


Call the Volvo dealer see if there a firmware update.. most people don't know there vehicle can be updated... The transmission "rough shift" might not be related, but still check for a computer update just like Microsoft company's release products before there "glitch free" I see so many OEM re tunes / Re flashes, available for just about every vehicle out there!
