Volvo V50 (2004 - 2012) 1.8 SE Sport 5d Owner Review

1.8 SE Sport 5d

Want to know everything there is to know about this car?

In their own words

This is a great small estate that I bought in red in 2019. I'm getting a tow bar fitted and some roof bars to support outdoor pursuits when lockdown lifts. Economy could be better, but I've done 10k miles and will be looking at the next models up when I need to upgrade / trade in. First Volvo and won't be going back to an Audi, VW or Toyota. May consider a Rav4 or something similar for country roads and potholes :D

How reliable do you find the car?

Clutch replacement. Possible engine issue resulting in oil loss every month or so.
