I picked up my V50 on Friday evening [Berents Blue, sport package, climate package]. Nice car, but have only driven it about 200 Kms over the weekend. I have been able to find a nice driving position [I am 6 foot 5, and we have the sunroof which does cut into the headroom a bit] but not too much space in behind me, although the only thing we have back there is a rather large dog. No problems to report [I would be surprised if there were any after only 200 Kms]. Fit and finish on the trim inside is well done without any obvious flaws.
WRT maintenence, our local dealer has advised an oil change at 3000k, 6000k and then at regular intervals of 12000k after that [if we go with the synthetic oil, which I will]. This is the only "break in" period that they mentioned. Still, I have shown restraint in keeping the rpm's below 6000 until at least that first oil change.
I am not sure what joe99 means by wear and tear while driving, but I have not noticed anything untoward yet while driving, but I have not yet tested the engine or tires to any sigificant degree.
