No Tommy, Im not planning on selling unless someone offers me a large wad of cash.
The Volvo doesn't wear flashys, they are on the Focus.

I have been in my XC60 for 10 months now. No other car has fitted my needs quite so well - size, style, performance, comfort, reliability, economy, etc, etc.
I was fantasising the other day about how nice it would be to win a million - and I surprised myself with the conclusion that if I did I could not think of another car I would rather have. It would be pointless changing...
I have never been able to say that about any other car I have owned, and that's included Mercs and BMs...
So what else can I dream about!!??

I love my C30, so much I'm looking for a second one. I did ponder a V50 a couple of years ago when I needed something slightly larger, that too seemed really nice, but my circumstances changed and I stuck with the C30.

I've never driven the XC cars nor a V70, S60 or V60 so I can't pass comment.

Driven the new V40 and that too seems brilliant, if I had a family I'd opt for that instead of the C30.

Long story short, C30.

I guess if I literally HAD to buy one...it would still be a V70.

Interesting - the S60 and V60 are nowhere in the poll! We should probably send this to Volvo...!
