    The Best Car Ive Owned By Far — I bought the car for £600 pounds in Torquay - It has full leather seats (HEATED) - Its 2.5 20v engine makes light work of most hills we bought the car due to the fact we had chinchillas and we had large cages and needed a big car for transportation,Inthe time iv`e had the car ive been impressed by its reliability has let me down apart from the usual (BRAKES - TYRES)

    Pros: Comfortable - Reliable - A great luggage lugger - A Great Motorway Cruiser

    Cons: A bit thirsty around 30 mpg

    Safe, Reliable And Fun — My first car. bought it in 2003 with 108,000 miles and drove it until 160,000 miles. There were some minor mechanical issues but overall she was safe and reliable. It wasn't that slow either, with a turbocharged 5 cylinder. It's a beautiful car, and it's still running good even after I sold it to my girlfriend!

    Pros: Safe, turbocharged, good gas mileage

    Cons: foreign car, costly repairs

    T5-r Volvo 850 — This is the car volvo made to coincide with the btcc entries at the time and produced in very limited numbers, as standard it comes with a 5 cylinder turbo charged 2.3l engine producing 240BHP STANDARD!! it never misses a beat its performance is mind blowing and has taken many a 'performance' car in its stride its the ultimate street sleeper but fuel !!! euuuggh it drinks it like no tomorrow but there has to be one downfall right? i love the low down touring car looks and it comes with every conceivable extra available such as to list a few electric adjustable heated leather seats, electric windows/sunroof, air con, dual climate control the list just goes on and on there is nothing you ever think oh i wish i had that in here!!

    Pros: EVERYTHING :)

    Cons: FUEL CONSUMPTION

    Volvo 850s — I hate the cost of owning this car - insurance premium through the roof. Its really thirsty on petrol getting no more than 20mpg. As its a t5-r replica I love the black wheels and the yellow paint job. The car is pretty quick considering it weights two tonnes. The build quality is really amazing after owning fords and vauxhalls which dont even see 200,000 miles this is almost there with only minor problems......NO RUST.

    Pros: Looks, quality, space

    Cons: cost of ownership

    The Wagon That Could — It's a millage buster, it will last after the earth as been destroyed, but seriously, it's a comfortable station wagon with lots and lots of space and full leather trim, it's the turbo version so it's rides like hell, with of course a little help from me and it also hold the road very nicely, I say, buy a volvo, you won't regret it, and it does'nt drink a lot too.

    Pros: It's a never-ending super car

    Cons: Pieces are a little costly

    Good Looking Car That Is Very Comfortable And Relatively Fun To Drive! — The car is amazing, It has 200,000 miles and has only had a few minor issues. She has tan leather seats and Aluminum wheels. it has a 2.4L inline 5 cylinder engine that puts out a meer 175hp. it does well in the winter because it is a heavier car. I have added some character to the car with a 12" subwoofer, and coat hanger for the antenna.

    Pros: Spacious, Decent engine, Very comfortable interior, has a unique exterior styling. It has survived 200,000 miles with only minor problems, it still looks great and solid mechanically

    Cons: Not the best gas mileage. not as fast as some newer cars.
