Attitudes about automated manual transmissions (AMTs) have changed over the years – so much so that more than 80 percent of all new Volvo trucks sold last year in North America were spec’d with a Volvo I-Shift AMT.

One of the most cited reasons that AMTs have gained in popularity is fuel efficiency. AMTs like the I-Shift take away the physical and mental demands of changing gears, which reduces driver fatigue and provides more time for the driver to give full attention to surrounding traffic.

The Volvo I-Shift is backed by an up to five years or 750,000 miles standard warranty. But as with any transmission, I-Shift components eventually wear out and need to be replaced.

When that time comes, Volvo offers four Reman service options. Designed to meet the needs of any budget, each solution uses Volvo Reman remanufactured parts that are engineered to include the latest updates. Each Volvo Reman Complete and Basic transmission offering is dyno-tested under load in our state-of-the-art test cell to ensure it meets Volvo’s strict specifications.

Your Volvo dealer can help you decide which service option is best for your truck’s engine based on its age and the type of repair it needs. These may include:

  • The I-Shift Range Section, a cost-effective remanufactured repair option designed for specifically targeted repairs. It includes a high-range drum, spacer ring, snap rings, speed sensor and output flange.
  • The I-Shift Short, which includes most I-Shift repair components except for the top shift cover, electronic control unit, clutch control actuator, solenoid valve and range section. In most cases, work can be completed in two days or less using this option. The I-Shift Short is backed by a one-year unlimited mile warranty on parts and labor when installed by an authorized Volvo dealer.
  • The I-Shift Basic, which includes most I-Shift components except for the top shift cover, electronic control unit, clutch control actuator and solenoid valve. Installation requires two days downtime or less. The I-Shift Basic is covered by a two-year unlimited warranty on parts and labor when installed by an authorized Volvo dealer.
  • The I-Shift Complete, which has all the parts needed to complete a comprehensive I-Shift repair, including a new control clutch actuator and solenoid valve. It comes fully assembled so your truck can be in and out of the service bay the same day. The I-Shift Complete comes with a two-year unlimited warranty on parts and labor when installed by a Volvo dealer.
