2005 Volvo V50 T5 Fwd 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

I've had my V50 for 3 wks and I am thrilled. Previous car, a Taurus wagon. I wanted a wagon again, but a slightly smaller one, yet with top safety and luxury features. On Edmunds I found the V50. We live on a small street with a tight driveway, and needed a car that could fit and turn in small spaces, yet be large enough to feel safe and comfortable during family vacations [two of us plus one teenager]. Back seat is not super roomy, but fine for our needs. I am enjoying the pep of the T5 engine [auto/FWD], and it certainly is 'fun to drive. I do notice a slight lag [is this "Turbo lag"?] when accelerating from a stop. Still, minor problem with all the positives. A beautiful, substantial car.

Favorite Features

Peppy. Clean lines. Cool interior design - no fake woodgrain.

Suggested Improvements

Fold-up "grocery bag holder" design needs to be re-thought - it doesn't work well for plastic bags and I know the elastic will eventually stretch out.
