    Clunks can be from the transmission, transmission mount or an engine mount. Hard to say without experiencing the problem. You may also have a shift issue making it shift later than normal and causing a hard shift.
    I suggest having a technician go for a ride and see what they say based on what the experience on the test drive.

    thanks for advice. On the web I see alot of volvo owners
    complaining about this issue. Most seem to live with it.
    One entry said it was a worn bearing
