Responsive and full of power (AC reduces
this substantially though). Comfortable
bucket seats, great sounding manufacturer's
audio/CD. Truly have enjoyed this car.
Faults: environmentally friendly brake pads
need replacing annually!! Also had chronic
defects in electronic driver seat adjuster. No
problems with engine in 4 years. I highly
recommend it. New V50 replaces it in 2004.
Longer lasting break pads!! More torque
with AC running
