A Shop Queen
By Former Volvo Lover on


2005 Volvo V50 2.4i Fwd 4dr Sport Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5A)


The car goes into the shop multiple times a year for warranty repairs. Lately, it has been in the shop more than I've been able to drive it. Some of the many issues include a major fuel leak warning, a sunroof drain routed to the drivers feet(and resulting flood), broken keys (they actually broke apart), air conditioning which suddenly spews hot air and then suddenly goes back to cold air (only on one side), broken sunroof motor, squeaky brakes (even new), broken antenna in the steering wheel which disables your key and strands you with no way to turn your car on (subsequent tow (by Volvo) resulting in a punctured oil pan and finger pointing by the Volvo Customer Service and Service Reps).

Best Features

I am a small person and I love the shape and feel of the front seats. The cargo space is great too.

Worst Features

There have been a lot of problems with this car. These may have been fixed in later years. This is my second Volvo. I will not buy a third.
