Topic - Volvo v50's

Newbuild100 - on 19 Apr 2013
Guys

I am in the market for an estate car and got my head/heart set on a volvo V50.
I can afford a 07/08/09 model but really unsure of which exact model to go for exactly, and should it be petrol or diesel ?
I will do no more than 6k/7k miles per year.
I think it will have to be a SE model.(And thats about as much as I know for definite !)
I have heard that the petrol versions can guzzle fuel at an an alarming rate,but also that the diesel versions can be unreliable when older and also have some expensive filters or something on them !!

Anyone any opinions on what to go for ?
(Has anyone got a petrol version, and can you confirm the scary fuel stats ?)

Thanks for any advice.
