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


I researched the car for about 9 months but had to wait to get the manual transmission. So far it has been a good experience, but it doesn't get as good mileage as my husband's BMW X3 2.5L, and the alternator went at approx. 7K miles. Highs are the great (stiff) road feel, peppiness, high-quality interior, awesome sound system, and ample back storage. Lows are the mileage and minimal front storage. I live in New England and find that the climate package is well worth the added cash.
