I've got 6200km on my 06 V50 AWD 6 speed. It's been in the dealer 4 times for warranty crap, and still needs a little more. Not great, but I love it anyway. Why do I love it, you ask?<p>Simple. Sitting in the office tonight about 11, I got bored, and felt like going for a drive. Drove a few miles down the road to my favourite local twisty road(Crescent Rd for any Surrey area people), and went for a blast. <p>I drive this road a lot, but always with the windows up, heat on. Being so warm tonight, I put the windows down. WOW! Little Jeff Buckley in the premium audio, xenon's lighting up the road, and blast it through the twisties. There are few things in life as sweet as listening to these cars coming out of a low speed corner, tires complaining, exhaust echoing, and turbo whistling up front! Such great noises! That T5 makes such a cool, unique sound, I love it.<p>That's all, just wanted to say I love my car, despite some minor "character flaws". If you haven't done it for a while, DRIVE YOUR CARS!<p> Al<p>

I feel the same way, its been in 3-4 times and its my second s40 (new shape) i've had.<p>I still need to take it in for a whole list of issues of which I will have to make an issue off that if it is not fixed this time... I wont be making any more payments.<p>despite the above, I love the car. I could always swap it for an s60 and save money too... but its just not the same.<br>the looks, curves, ride, and just overall feel is just great and thats what ties me down <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

Rarely do I wax philosophical about my cars, but I felt the same way this weekend in the Supra, and today in the V50. <p>Got the new Fort Minor cd playing with ProLogic, windows down, and rolling around Bellevue tonight -- some m0ron in an Audi tried to race me... <p>Needless to say he lost and this was one of those great nights/weekends to have great cars to enjoy. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><br>-Chris

Re: (quick)
