Sport 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.
Really 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,
Non-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)?
