I love this car
Pros: Great steering, easy to control, great brakes,dependable
Cons: SeatI would definitely recommend this car to a friend.
Very good vehicle
Pros: The individual heat/cool button for front seats.
Cons: The comfort of a big car.Volvo has been dependable and fun to drive. It has room in the back for all my art easels, etc. The safety bags in front and side are comforting to be there and the engine construction is good to slide sideways in case of an accident. It rides easy but much smoother when carrying a load. I like it.
V50 Sport Wagon
Pros: Auto Stick shift feature
Cons: seat adjuster for passenger seatOutstanding vehicle in both quality and performance. I have 150,000 miles on this vehicle and it has better fuel economy now than when it was brand new. Averaging 29-30 mpg hwy and 25 city for the last 20,000 miles. The 5 cylinder engine is potent and plenty of power for highway driving. Handling is superb and the car corners like it is on rails. Only area that might be improved is the adjustment for the passenger seat. A bit clunky for such a nice car. This car is well made and is still quiet and squeek free after 150K miles. The car looks and drives like a sports car and still has the functionality of a small wagon. Seats are comfortable and provide great lumbar support.
Pros: Sound of audio system, heated seats.
Cons: Small door pockets.The car is joy to drive, very comfortable and quiet. Turbocharged engine is very fuel efficient and powerful Luggage space is a big and with folded rear seats is possible transport surprisingly large objects.
Pros: handling on road and lower center of gravity makes it feel like a sport car on stiroids
Cons: none at this time
Advice: Drive one and put through the paces. you can't bet itHandling is great with awd in snow. Has plenty of pick up and love the room. Had suv for past eight yrs. this car out does any thing a suv could do.
