V50 T5 AWD has been great so far
By BJTerp on


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


I traded in my Jeep Liberty for a new V50 T5 AWD because I wanted something fun to drive. The Volvo has not disappointed. The performance and handling are great for a car in this class, and the car feels very solid. Compared to the BMW 330xi and Audi A4 2.8 Avant, the V50 gives you a lot of bang for the buck, and better styling. The interior is beautiful, and very comfortable. The upgraded stereo sounds fantastic, and the 17" wheels give the car an aggressive look.

Best Features

I like the floating center stack and its easy to use audio / climate controls. The tilt / telescope wheel makes it easy to find a comfortable driving position. The T5 engine has a lot of punch, and the AWD is great for handling at speed -- it definitely does not feel like a front-wheel drive car.

Worst Features

The radio has done a couple of funny things, but they were easily corrected by turning it on and off. It could use a little more rear seat room, but it is actually pretty comfortable back there if the front seat riders don't have their seats all the way back.
