2006 Volvo V50 2.4i 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5A)

Review

Traded in my Jag XJ8 VDP for a silver station wagon and so far has little regrets. Better gas mileage (23 MPG average) compensates for luxury features, and the V50 is a very fine looking car from almost all angles. What surprised me is how well the car handles. The downside is ride quality (can feel lots of LA street bumps), and how A/C can draw down gas mileage significantly. The space behind center controls looks neat, but not very functional. Overall, a happy owner. The silver color also means fewer car washes because it doesn't look dirty, as long as you Windex the windows.

Best Features

Style, steering wheel, VERY adjustable seats, handling.

Worst Features

Better gas mileage, more interior storage room (small center storage, awkward behind-the-radio storage, small map pockets, tiny glove compartment).
