2007 Volvo V50 Wagon 2.4i 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5A)


Review

At 105,000 expect to spend $2,000 for a timing belt change - too damn much when compared to other brands, and that's not the dealership. Also, little things are costly.

Review

I drove a number of Ford Focus, my wife had a v50.....every time I drove her car I was jealous.
I finally found an 07 for myself. The car has changed my life.
It had 119k on it ,so I knew I would have to do some work on it. ..but I didn't care, for what I paid for it I was well ahead of the game and I like working on cars...it was so worth it ...They talk about the simple Sweed design....well it's pretty easy to work on too. What you typically don't hear about is how well this car is insulated....it's amazingly quiet and warm.
All cars have their problems, and this one is worth them.
I have a number of nice cars/trucks......I am The Mustang Chef
Volvos are cool.

2007 Volvo V50 Wagon 2.4i 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5A)


Review

Mine has 156,000KM on it. Bought it as a demo with 22,000KM (Canada).

It's been good. Here is a list of things that needed repair:

1. Ambient temperature gauge wouldn't work causing the A/C to malfunction. This required 3 trips to the dear to fix it
2. A/C Air Compressor died around 130,000km
3. Both wheel bearings needed to be replaced
4. Both front shocks needed to be replaced
5. One day while driving the car just full on shut down. Had it towed and it was a fuel line sensor

I think that's about it. So only left me stranded once. Overall, a pretty good car.

2007 Volvo V50 Wagon T5 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

This car has been fantastic!
Its a lease and I'm seriously considering keeping it.
Have had NO problems with this car.
Its been great in snow (AWD T5 Automatic is the version I have).
It is sturdy, solid, and still has decent pick-up considering.
The MPG is as stated.
I drive in a lot of bumper to bumper / slow highway commuting traffic and get about 20 MPG.

Review

I begged my husband to trade in my '99 4Runner for a more stable vehicle on the highway so he got me an '07 Volvo V50. Took it on the highway and it was amazing, but then I started to notice little noises you wouldn't expect to hear in a "luxury" vehicle. Had the tires and rear brakes replaced and it got quieter but there is still noise. It is starting to get really hot in NC so I'm using my A/C frequently, that is of course when the compressor wants to work. Today I put my key in the ignition and the car "immobilized" because it thought I was trying to steal my own car. On top of the grinding noise in my front wheel bearings I now have electrical problems! Do not buy one!


Worst Features

Electrical systems need to be fixed! Compressor need adjustments.
