So I just test drove the C70. I really love the car and the way it handles. Great visibility, great seats, great hard top. Even a decent amount of trunk space. Wife loved it too. <p>BUT since I want a manual transmission and they didn't have one, I also test drove the C30 in stick -- which I believe has the same engine and transmission -- just to see how it shifted. <p>I have to say, it was truly awful. <B>The stick shift moved like a straw in a slushee.</B> And the clutch pedal has zero tension. <p>Is this typical in your experiences? Or did I just get a lemon?<p>If it is typical, does anyone happen to know if these are capable of being remedied in any way by Volvo? That is, does Volvo sell an add on short throw shifter? Do Volvo's allow for tightening of the clutch pedal? <p>I would really like to get the C70, but not with that awful clutch/shifter.<p>Thanks.
