Buy a New Transmission or Rebuild: 2001 V70

What to expect when you have a 2001 Volvo transmission (known for failures… early and often) replaced by a dealer.

  1. Is it worth it to replace or have the transmission rebuilt?
  2. Would a new transmission going back into that year and model resolve all those issues?
  3. Will these issues plague the car forever?
  4. Would the transmission issues fry the motor?
  5. If I spend 2 or 3 grand and replace the tranny and maybe a little more to replace the computer is this lemon worth saving?

Should I buy a new tranny, have the old one rebuilt, or say
