2005 Volvo V50 2.4i Fwd 4dr Sport Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5A)


Now that our kids are 5 and 7 years old, it is FINALLY time to move out of the mini van and get my wife into something a little more enjoyable to drive. We looked at several SUVs and "sport wagons" but hadn't found much that met our requirements of being safe & sporty, and that could fit 2 kids and the family dog comfortably (and that was in our price range!). After doing lots of research, we stumbled upon the V50 in the 'wagon' section of Edmunds.com and decided to head to the local Volvo dealer.

Best Features

1. The looks; nice looking car! 2. Standard options (we bought a base model and are happy with what comes standard including the stereo) 3. Gas mileage 4. Performance - the 2.4i moves along pretty well 5. Saftey - lots of safey features = lower insurance

Worst Features

We only have 150 miles on the car an we love it. If we HAD to pick a few negative things: 1. The ride is a little harsh over bumps 2. The roof mounted map light area in front of the rear view mirror is large and takes getting used to (gets in the line of vision) 3. Aggressive tires
