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

Review

OK, we knew that this was a small wagon going into our purchase, but, man, is it cramped! If you need more cargo space than a sedan but not as much as an SUV, this would be a fun (and functonal) vehicle to drive. But, with two toddlers (and all the stuff that goes with them), it is just smaller than we were thinking it would be. Plus, maintenance and repair on this vehicle is astronomical. ($200 to replace ONE tire!) We've had some reliability issues with the electrical system as well. We're already looking to trade it in for something else...

Favorite Features

Gas mileage is very good; T5 model is very fun to drive; Doesn't look like a "typical" wagon; Safety features can't be beat; Available upgrade sound system is excellent.

Suggested Improvements

Make the upgraded sound system standard; A/C vents for rear passengers (our Camry even has that!)
