Overall, the 2005 Volvo T5 is awesome! Some people thought I was crazy to go from a 2004 3-Series BMW to a Volvo, but the superb handling & luxurious feel of this car far surpasses the BMW. The car is safe, reliable, powerful and very fun to drive. The fuel economy is also a plus, as was the purchase price! If you enjoy luxury at a reasonable price, the new Volvo is a must have!
The 12-Speaker Dolby Digital Surround System is a must have in this car - it makes the car even more fun to drive. The 6-speed manual transmission is also a blast to drive and the car has a ton of power and pickup.
The car is not very old, but at this point, I see no room for improvement. This car is an overall excellent purchase!
