While driving

While driving  - Automatic transmission - Starting and driving - Volvo XC90 Owners Manual - Volvo XC90

If you select the MAN position while driving, the gear that was being used in the D position will also initially be selected in MAN position.

Х Move the gear selector forward (toward "+") to shift to a higher gear or rearward (toward "Ц ") to shift to a lower gear.
Х If you hold the gear selector toward "Ц", the transmission will downshift one gear and will utilize the braking power of the engine.

If the current speed is too high for using a lower gear, the downshift will not occur until the speed has decreased enough to allow the lower gear to be used.
Х If you slow down to a very low speed, the transmission will automatically shift down.
Х When starting in the MAN position, 3rd gear is the highest gear that may be selected.
