Expert Review

By Kelley Blue Book Editorial Staff

You'll Like The 2009 Volvo V50 If...

If passenger safety is a top priority, the V50's side-impact airbags, side-curtain airbags and Whiplash Protection System should hold strong appeal. In addition to the cargo-hauling capabilities of a wagon and appealing gas-mileage estimates, Volvo promises a healthy dose of performance with the turbocharged T5.

I don't want to replace it and it is almost 10 years old.

My small wagon is versatile and can haul lots of stuff. It has a nice ride. The one flaw it had was a water leak that kept returning. We redesigned the drain tube and corrected the problem that several dealers could not correct.

- Fran F

They should know I fell off a road and mountain and survived ion Volvo.

I like the color red . It shines bright like a diamond and it makes me happy. I almost got into an accident because i'm super fast, one time I slid off the road but I landed on water and saved.

- Zack S

It feels like you could do ok if it were in a major accident.

It's a very safe car. Has held up well. Maintenance can get expensive though.
