2006 Volvo V50 Geartronic 2.4


Sensible choice


My wife drove over a centre island in the road, and damaged the whole undercarriage of the car.

Had to replace the battery.

Had to fix a seal on the sunroof.

General Comments:

Very easy to drive, and love the looks.

No leg room in the back, and it's got a small boot.

Too small to put your dogs in the boot, like I did with my Peugeot estate.

Parts are ridiculous prices, and so is the fuel bill.

The 6 speed geartronic gearbox is a dream to use in both manual and auto. It's much quicker when you put it in manual though.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
