Be curious to know what they drive like? Volvo drivers seem more willing to treat the cars like real cars rather than just a hobby to be tinkered with.

112 HP in a 2600 pound car and a horrible slush box doesn't exactly add up to a fireball. With a manual 4-speed plus OD, it's a nice highway cruiser, but the automatic has a 1:1 top gear and a non-locking torque converter, so you're turning lots of revs at highway speeds.
