    My car

    EThis is an excellent load carrier with a good quality feel. My '52' registered vehicle does 20,000 miles pa.

    However, turning circle is very poor, sufficient to make me look for another make and model when I come to change.

    This is the fifth Volvo Estate on the trot I have had through the 900 services, and previous V70 the latter being the best.

    The fuel consumption is also poorer than advertised - I struggle to get more than 30mpg out of the car and I am not a very fast driver.

    My car

    This is the best car I have ever owned.

    600 miles on a tank (auto) on the motorway, with climate control, on a 12-and-a-half-hour drive was like going round the corner!
