Default 06 Thermostat With ECT Sensor

Curious if anyone was aware that the 06 XC 70 has an ECT sensor attached to the thermostat which is enclosed in an housing and cost $160.00 Can. Some of the Non Volvo Mechanics in my area are not aware of this and cost me a good chunk of money proving it to me. I dont know if it is just the Canadian cars that have this but I was told mainly the 06 vehicles have it. The car was also throwing some codes for an ECT sensor and the Non Volvo Mech decided it was a feedback sensor in the heater controls-NOT. Anyway got a second opinion at a Volvo dealership and they replaced the fancy thermostat which has corrected the problem.
Just thought I would put this out there so no one learns this the hard way like I did.
