Car Talk

Subscriber onlyDEAR CAR TALK: I just bought my wife a new Honda and inherited her old 2005 Volvo S80 T6. My "new" ride has 182,000 miles on it, a killer stereo and an odd problem I've never seen before: When making a left turn while moving, the engine will rev, as if in neutral, when I step on the accelerator. Once I take my foot off the gas, the car finds a gear and I can accelerate normally. This doesn't occur when making a right turn, and it doesn't happen if I come to a stop before turning left. Have you seen this issue before, and is it anything to be concerned about? Thanks! Continue reading...
