V50, 2009, 52000 miles, 1.8 petrol). Bought November 2015.
(13th December 2015) 2009 Volvo V50 Petrol Manual 5 speed Estate by Mr Mark Shilliday
Never had a Volvo before, but glad we changed. Got a pup so had to change from a coupe/ convertible. V50 feels solid, drives like a dream, smooth and composed. Boot is not huge but its not small either (as many reviews will lead you to believe), big enough for our labrador and a ton of shopping. Don't listen about all the "its not a Volvo, its a Ford guff either, this is a high quality car, certainly as good as anything German. 1.8 petrol engine could be more powerful but it does the job for us, and I wouldn't change it. I will definitely buy Volvo again.
