This is a stick shift car which is going strong at 92,000 miles. I use it for both business and personal use. It is roomy inside, handles beautifully, and I feel very safe when I'm driving. I like the design better than the new Volvo sedans' design. Fuel economy is impressive - better than the published figures (my driving is about 50% city and 50% highway). Trunk space is more than adequate. We generally keep our Volvos for fourteen or fifteen years and they are always manual transmission cars.
The stick shift! Great fun to drive and, at 92,000 miles, we have yet to replace the clutch.
Radio antenna - it has broken twice and it doesn't provide the best reception in rural areas.
