Anyone on here ever own one of these? I'm thinking about buying one.

Anyone on here ever own one of these? I'm thinking about buying one. Every listing I've seen is about $10k for 100k miles which isn't bad for the current insane market

    I had the slow 1.6L version. But it was incredibly comfy, still the most comfortable hatchback I've driven to date it feels more like a luxury sedan almost. Petrol consumption is a bit on the thirsty side for such a small and slow engine but overall I really enjoyed that car and would probably still have it today if a truck didn't heem into me and total it.
    I had it in black and thought the front of the car was absolutely kino looking. Volvo later ruined in the last iteration of the model by facelifting it and imo that completely ruined the look of the car.
    I miss mine a lot, pic related is close to what it looked like

      I don't think it looks bad, but it definitely looks a lot more generic

        Generic is definitely the right word

      prefacelift is definitely better looking, I really like the headlight 'eyeliner'
      currently have the 2.5T, got it for 5k at 90k miles from the first owner
      i wont be the first or last to tell you its got a lot in common with the focus at/rs engines, top tier powerplant, v reliable bc its not really stressed despite being turbod, faster round the burgerking than stock gt86s, just wish the stock exhaust opened up a bit - you can still hear the 5 cylinders but only after like 2.5-3k rpm
      excellent feeling from the road while still being very comfy, its still a hatch not a boat
      dont expect to fit anyone except children and gigamanlets in the back, not much cargo space either, but the driver and passenger get a lot of room

    Had one, was very comfy.
    Only issue is the interior quality is lacking in some places. The things you touch feels solid enough, but plastic mesh on the speakers and such has a tendency to explode upon touch and you can't buy the meshes themselves, you have to buy the whole door card. Others have reported sagging headline is an issue, though I didn't have that on mine
    Upside is that it shares a lot of mechanical bits and design solutions from the Focus, so engine parts and suspension is cheap, they also use those quick pull tabs for the headlight, so you can remove the whole headlight in seconds when you want to change the bulbs

    I wanted to get one of those, but the interior is so fricking ugly I passed.
    I think the V40s are similar but have better interiors.

      V40 is the successor, so there should be some differences

    My sister owned one:
    The floating center-console was interesting.
    The windows were almost twice as thick as any car I have ever been in.
    The steering wheel was fat.
    The digital displays were like an 80's casio.
    Seats were plush. Noice.
    Felt like a very solidly built car.

    Nah but I've got the same engine under the hood. 5 cylinders are pretty cool.

        Where?

        PA, near philly i've seen 2 clean r designs sit for months at 6500, saw a regular 6 speed t5 non r design sell basically over night for 4900. I think by mid summer when the used market catches up to the falling economy they can be picked up for 4k, I would say right now 5200 seems to be a good deal for a clean 6 speed. I think i might hop on the next clean r design I find, pre facelift looks so clean.

    They're pretty comfy hatches, and they roll at good clips too. Lift gate being a little small can make it hard to load, but its still a practical boot that can hold all the meatballs you can eat. I will say, however, if you can find a c30 t5 r-design for a good price, go for that instead. Same form, better function, kooky i5, some of them had turbos. Going back to the ç50, 10k at 90k miles or less, is a steal, just remember that the p1 cars can sometimes pop their piston rings at around 110k. Preventative maintenance is your friend, and get chummy with the local Volvo dealership.
