"Love my car, this is my second Volvo and I've only had minor repairs as well as the normal maintenance. I've been fortunate to have a wonderful and honest service writer,and back up garage to take it to. The car is less than 5 years old with almost 150,000miles on it but still handles like new. I plan to put at least another 150,000 miles on it."
"I bought this car new in 2005 so I'm coming up on years and 65,000 miles. I previously owned several other Volvos, 240, 850 and 850 turbo. This car is fantastic. It has exhillarating acceleration and handling. I commute about 50 miles a day, mostly interstate, and average 33 mpg. We've hauled amazing amounts of stuff including bookshelves and wheelbarrows. The only repair that I can recall was a temperature sensor. I'll be happy if I can keep this car running forever."
"I've put 23,000 miles on my V50 and I like the car very much. Although it's my wife's car, I do most of the driving. We took it on a road trip and averaged 28 mpg. It's very quick, has comfortable front seats and ample cargo room in back. Seems sure-footed in rain and snow. My only issue is the back seat which is a bit cramped for large people. Otherwise a fine running, well designed machine. Feels like a sportscar."
"Absolutely no problems with this wagon. Handles nicely, is comfortable, room for average-size adults in rear seat, dog friendly. Getting 32 mpg with long distance driving - including interstate, state highways, slowing for small towns and running a few errands. Got 34 mpg on cross country trip."
