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

Review

We are soccer parents so are on the road almost every weekend shuttling kids from event to another. We need a spacious and reliable car. The first 2 years were ok. The last 2 years have been a headache. The car is in the shop every month! The electronic system is always failing, with all kinds all scary warning signs: Engine Failure, Break Failure, Transmissions failure! This week was the worst. The immobilizer warning comes on and the key is stuck at position 1. Had to get it towed to the shop. Volvo has not been able to fix the problem after so many software upgrades. If you do not want to find yourself stranded 200 miles away from home, do not buy this car

Favorite Features

We love the style and how spacious it is. Easy to pack in all kids stuff on out numerous road trips. Handles well.

Suggested Improvements

Fix the electronic system!
