Vehicle2005 Volvo V50 2.4i Fwd 4dr Sport Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5A)
ReviewI bought this car while overseas. I
saved money but the process was
complicated. Generally, however, this
is a very solid, well designed car with
many useful, standard features. The
performance with the standard engine is
better than adequate. I have already
driven it in the snow and it is great.
I did have a problem with the vapor
recovery system that took 3 days to
fix, but the dealer was responsive and
gave me a loaner (S40 with turbo -
faster but displayed turbo lag).
Hopefully, the problems are behind me,
as I am looking forward to many useful
miles. This is my first Volvo (Honda
and VW's in the past) and so far it has
Best Features2.4i engine, handling, controls/driver interface, nice standard radio, miles to empty display
Worst FeaturesMore robust vapor recovery system. Also, the cargo cover assembly is too complicated and takes up too much room; a simple roll-out cover would be better. Trip computer should include elapsed mileage and time.
