V50 Review

Vehicle
2005 Volvo V50 T5 AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
Review
Bought the 2005 Volvo V50 T5 for its modern, sleek center panel, awesome upgraded stereo, and excellent low-end torque (i.e. great peppiness when driving). The AWD, Volvo safety, and beautiful outward appearance of the car are great. I chose this car over the the 2005 Subaru Outback (suboptimal stereo), Mazda 6 (only FWD), and Nissan Murano.
Favorite Features
Modern (aluminum) plasma-screen thin sleek center console, Awesome stereo system (upgraded option) Luxurious comfortable seats. Peppiness when driving! Minimal wind noise.
Suggested Improvements
The suspension on the V50 T5 AWD is too firm. It is not like this on the FWD model. I feel the most minute bumps on roads. Highway driving is fine. I am experiencing an annoying mild vibration noise from passenger seat (when shutting doors and over bumps), but was able to correct this by keeping the seat in a certain position. This car also has suboptimal interior storage.
