The Volvo V50 is my first time venturing into the high end car lines and it hasn't disappointed. The car is neat looking and has thus far performed very well. Didn't even notice the speed when we were cruising the 476 Blue Route at 75 mph. The ride is quiet and the feel is quite snug in this little wagon. We just became grandparents, and we wanted to be safe carting our new charge around. I think we made the right move.
The basic radio sounds very good. The console is neat! Good feel for the road on turns. Seat adjustments are easy to use.
Could use a change drawer in the driver's cockpit.
