2006 Volvo V50 T5 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

Imagine driving the highway at speed and experiencing a complete electrical system failure. After two years and multiple dealer "remedies" including replacement of major electrical components, these problems continue and overshadow an otherwise decent vehicle. Often the car simply will not start, but when you get it to the dealer they cannot duplicate your issue and appear to be unable to troubleshoot. For the money, the Audi A4, Volkswagen Passat or the C-class MB wagon (no longer sold) are better options.

Favorite Features

Exterior styling, easy to fold rear seats, storage area behind front center console.

Suggested Improvements

Fix the electrical problems.
