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


We bought our V50 wagon because we had a baby on the way. It was by far the best looking in it class. We've had some minor issues. The visor mirror lights stopped working, but the dealership fixed it without complaint. My biggest gripe has been that it goes through breaks and tires fast. The brakes needed replaced at 25k and the tires will need replaced before 40k. The car also has a tendency to look the saved seat settings. It can take or day or two to get it right again. Overall, the car has been great though. I would definitely buy one again.

Best Features

Exterior styling. Comfortable seats.Smooth, quite ride.

Worst Features

Lack of interior storage compartments. Poor city mileage. Over thick "A" pillar creates a blind spot when turning left. Tight foot well around the gas peddle.
