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


I've had my V50 for 3 wks and I am
thrilled. Previous car, a Taurus wagon.
I wanted a wagon again, but a slightly
smaller one, yet with top safety and
luxury features. On Edmunds I found the
V50. We live on a small street with a
tight driveway, and needed a car that
could fit and turn in small spaces, yet
be large enough to feel safe and
comfortable during family vacations
[two of us plus one teenager]. Back
seat is not super roomy, but fine for
our needs. I am enjoying the pep of the
T5 engine [auto/FWD], and it certainly
is 'fun to drive. I do notice a slight
lag [is this "Turbo lag"?] when
accelerating from a stop. Still, minor
problem with all the positives. A
beautiful, substantial car.

Best Features

Peppy. Clean lines. Cool interior design - no fake woodgrain.

Worst Features

Fold-up "grocery bag holder" design needs to be re-thought - it doesn't work well for plastic bags and I know the elastic will eventually stretch out.
