Question about Volvo XC70
Yea had one last month come in with same issue exactly to the "t". i was able to pull numerous codes out of the computer but once i cleared them i drove it and never could duplicate the issue again. so i gave it back to the customer and said to drive until it happened again and never heard back from him.
but in my experience these kinds of issue's are directly related to software and or poor connection in the harness. but being stuck in 4th and 5 th is it's fail safe mode when it see's an issue with the transmission and does this to allow you to drive in for service. yours did everything the one i had in the shop.
hopefully this help and i hope your issue stays so it can be diagnosed and to find a fix. unfortunately the xc70 i had decided to fix itself and could never track it down. bottom line is if it ain't broke you can't fix it.
so i would have them do a software update and give the harness a good look over first before anything else is done.
good luck and thank you for using fixya.
please if you have any more question please ask.

I think your along the right lines, I would make sure the fluid is correct for the car and also that the slave cylinder is working properly, It is unlikely to be the torque converter with such low miles.
I had a similar issue on a ford mondeo auto sometime ago after bleeding the system and topping up the fluid it was fine foe another 10,000 miles although I had to replace the slave cylinder in the end. But I cannot be sure that is related due to the time that had elapsed.
Do you park the car on a hill at any time?
