Manual Transmissions – Durability & Feel

This is an interesting forum discussion about manual transmission Volvos:

I am going to drive a 5 speed V70 and a 6 speed V70R. What am I looking for when I drive these cars? Should the transmission shifting action be very well defined or can I expect a bit of rubberyness in the action? Clutch take up, half pedal and strong?
I’ve never driven a non-RWD manual Volvo and don’t know how it should feel.
