    I stopped at the dealer to see if they hav a V70 R for a test drive
    (To replace my 84 850 turbo wagon), and noticed the V50. Not a bad
    little wagon. I didn't know it existed.
    Took it out for a couple runs through the test loop, and was favorably
    impressed by the performance and handling.
    There were a few negatives:
    1. Transmission hump presses against my right ankle. Could be
    irritating on long drives

    2. Manual shift mode reponse is slow.

    3. Full service docs still not available..

    Unfortunately, #3 is a deal-killer. I guess I'll have to see how the
    Legacy GT compares..
