Got a letter from my dealer yesterday basically announcing the death knell of the V50 and offering 'first dibs' on a handful of V50s they'd secured for the dealership.

I doubt the V40 is going to fit my needs and the V60 rear opening/load bay height isn't big/tall enough for the job the V50 has being doing.

Guess I'm going to have to run the V50 into the ground....

Looks, overall function, comfort, etc..... This car should have been a home run for Volvo, but again, they utterly failed to promote it.

Looks like I'll be aiming for one of those "million mile" badges.....

That is very True , they were to concern at the Time with Money and Ford Selling ( If , If , If ) : so the brought out a Nicer V70 & XC90 during V50 Time Period - then the S60
& V60 - which tied up all - Their Production . VW started to Kick a lot of Butt and really took control of a lot of secondary vendors , Bosch , ME 9.1 , Electronics's , Higher Fuel Cost
Drove Folks to other markets . Plus there weren't many Vehicles on the Lots . All they had to due was Add - R - Brakes - Keep the M66 and crank up the T5 - like they did in the S60 T5 .

Easily could have taken this platform another - 5 yrs !

The V40 - If they actually make a Wagon - not just a 5 door hatch ,as the 20.5 " they claim as the Bumper lift over Height is Totally Wrong it's more like 26.5 "
which higher the V50 with a much smaller rear Storage entrance . Just look at My side by side photo's of the - V50 & Ford Focus !
