Have had my V50 for about 8 months now. I still love to drive home from work each day. The engine is responsive, the handling great and feel is solid. Test drove many other makes (Audi, BMW and VW) and with thier lease options couldn't even come close to the value of the Volvo. I have most all the options except for the sport package and navigation. Recommend the upgraded stereo, sounds fantastic. So far, no complaints just that their is not that much room for storing things. Best of all I feel like I am driving a bank vault!!
