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


We have put just over 1500 miles on the car and it is great! We got all the options except the DSC (in hindsight, I would have purchased this) and navigation system. Used to have an Audi A4 and this car is much better. The seats are more comfortable, the stereo is better and easier to use, and it performs just as well if not better.

Best Features

Seats, upgraded stereo system (300 watts in a Volvo!!), instrument panel, handling in snow (did great with recent Boston snows) and on dry pavement, low drive/wind noise.

Worst Features

Like someone else mentioned, some funky stuff happened with the CD changer, but fixed itself after turning it on and off. Would like self dimming SIDE view mirrors along with rear view mirror (Audi has outside dimming mirrors). Key remote does not have very good range through snow covered car.
