Pros: "fun to drive, reliable, and elegant"

Cons: "more expensive tires than usual, but its a volvo"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"The 2008 Volvo v50 was one of the better Volvos I've driven. I never really had any problems with the car, other than having to fix the oil pan because of these horrible pot holes in New Orleans. The only flaw is that the tires or more expensive because only premium tires fit on it."

"The skateboard for the normal people. Lots of juice. Been happy with it for 5 years. Been fortunate for having the 5 year bumper to bumper service included with the purchase and only needed it once with a leak in the AC."

Pros: "Great handling, even at hi speeds on country roads"

Cons: "There are no cons; this car is perfect"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I did the research for 3 years, and when I saw the local Volvo dealer's newspaper ad for this retired service loaner, I jumped on it. It meets all my needs, has plenty of cargo space, and has been perfectly dependable. Because I am an avid gardener, my car has to be a work horse, not a show horse, and I have absolutely no complaints. It's now 10 years old and still looks brand new, handles remarkably, and performs beautifully."
