You must be kidding! Isn't that a statement on US Volvo drivers? I am
*almost* positive you can get a 850 Turbo with a 5-sp here in Canada. As a
matter of fact, I think I will call up the dealer and find out.

Yes, you can get a 5-speed in Canada. No, you cannot get one (on the
turbo) in the US. What I've read claimed it was because that
engine/trans combination wouldn't meet California emissions. I don't
think it's a statement on US Volvo drivers, since this car was
targeted at the "atypical" Volvo driver.
Geez, I'm starting to forget which list this is! :)
