    I find the shifting action is rather rough when the engine is cold,
    especially between first and second gears. I can feel a "jolt" when the
    clutch is released. In other words, the shifting action is not as smooth as
    on a Honda or Toyota.
    Has anyone experienced something similar with a manual transmission Volvo ?

    Clutch plates can stick on the gearbox input shaft on the manuals, which is
    apparent by a sudden grabbing when moving off from a standstill, and in the
    low gears. No real fix, you have to live with it.
