I own an 08 V50 T5, I have every option but awd, and gps, and I love it. I have had the extended warranty repair on the oil trap/pcv valve. That is the only problem I have had. I would recommend the V50 with the T5 to anyone. My car was a gift from its original owner, who purchased it in europe. I love my Grandmother.
This car drives and feels like a fun little sports car. It has plenty of pep with some room to spare. We have taken it on many road trips loaded down, with a child, dog, and full size stroller. The quality of the workmanship inside and out is spectacular. We have had no mechanical issues whatsoever. A great little family car that gets pretty good gas mileage!
The safety rating is awesome and the quality of the car is undeniable.
Fun to drive. Nice test drive around Horsetooth Res. Have driven to numerous Frontrange ski areas in bad weather, car was great. Stability control saved car at I-70 and Dumont. I have Gecko green with Sparticus wheels. Exterior is sharp. Interior comfortable
Turbo, audio system. I-pod Aux input, leather
Climate control system, specifically seat heat and control modules. I have had car in for service for these issues
