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

Review

I've driven for over 2 years, lease is up in a few months. The negatives are always easier so... Visibility: Ironically, the safety features detract from visibility. I removed the huge rear seat head supports in order to see the small rear window. The front columns are so thick they create a blind spot. Eats up power steering fluid (typical European?)- Have to replenish in less than 1 year. Wind Noise as stated elsewhere. I avoid bumps. It DOES NOT ride like a Town Car. Maybe it's the stock Contis? They're terrible in the snow. Pros: Adequate acceleration, I don't need 0- 60 in 5 secs. Very responsive handling, just don't run out of the expensive PS fluid. Great Looks.

Favorite Features

Acceleration. Responsiveness. Auto/Manual tranny.

Suggested Improvements

Better visibility incorporated into design. Why put street tires on an AWD?
