2005 Volvo V50 T5 AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Volvo was not a contender in our original search for a station wagon. After much research we settled on the A4 wagon, then we went to the SF car show. A fantastic vehicle that trumps BMW and Audi on all the features that mattered to us; interior space, horsepower (torque lbs), and styling. Our only hesitation was that it was the first year model, but the $10k we saved convinced us to take the plunge.

Best Features

Off the line torque unequaled by the 3 series or the A4. Beautiful front end and interior. Spirited acceleration in the geartronic at highway speeds.

Worst Features

An 'audio in' jack would be much appreciated. Space between gas and break pedal could be wider (a size 11 will notice the distance here).
