I was offered this vehicle for a very attractive price. It needs a new steering rack. The transmission was replaced 5 years ago.
I read the Edmund’s reviews and the Tranny is a weak spot. Some people love them some hate them. My questions are:
- Would a new transmission installed 11 years after its mfg date have any improvements over the original design?
- How hard is it to R&R the steering rack. Can a handy person do it themselves.
3.What other problems should I be looking for?
I am not a big volvo fan or a fan of AWD but for the price I may be interested.
