2005 Volvo V50 T5 AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
Review
Overall, a great wagon. This was my mid-life-crisis-leave-the-Sequoia-at- home-car: fun to drive but still goes up the ski hill, holds a kayak and dogs in the back. We bought the T5 AWD, with most upgrades except stereo and DVD. More headroom than 325ix, performance on par with Audi/BMW wagons for considerably less money. Rides a bit choppy in city, which is OK (and we're on 16 inch wheels), but tends to roll just slightly in spirited cornering unlike BMWs. Turbo thrust is even and strong. Performance on snow is fantastic. No problems. Go for the T5 AWD. In hindsight, I'd get the stereo and DVD NAV. By George, this wagon is a winner for Volvo.
Favorite Features
MPG, dog gate, overall performance, bi-xenons, fit and finish.
Suggested Improvements
In dash pull out cup holders; add an accessible storage compartment; allow choice of buying 17 in. wheels as stand-alone option. Build real beef into the now fluffy performance option, 300 hsp engine? Lose the weight sensitive seatbelt warning on the passenger side (laptop sets it off!).
