ReviewSport trimmed seats were definitely appreciated in the T5 as the side bolsters are much better than the standard seats (just take a curve quickly in a v70 with standard seats and compare). 17" rims/tires were a very decent deal for $500 extra (compare to buying this aftermarket). Safety features much appreciated. Dynamic stability control was a must when I made this purchase, great for peace of mind in wet driving. Seemingly very stable, stiff chassis. Wife loves it.
Best FeaturesReally supportive, comfortable seats, great visibility out the front, very good to rear/sides. Acceleration is very good, geartronic shifting is very useful when driving in moutains. Great handling tradeoff between every day non-harshness and crisp, responsive handling/ride.
Worst FeaturesNon-proprietary CD changer interface, want removeable MP3 (eg iPod), but proprietary changer interface makes it impossible. Would have purchased integrated power window shades. Prefer similar HP/torque V6/V8. Why is 3rd row seat only for kids over 55lbs (why no booster seats)?
