Don't Purchase - Look at Competition
By PBW on


2005 Volvo V50 2.4i Fwd 4dr Sport Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5A)


Wife's car. Bought to replace V40. OK power. Expensive maintenance after warranty. Inside cramped for adults. Better cars out there unless you are looking for the Volvo brand and think it is still the safest - which it is not- good marketing campaign...

Best Features

Tight steering, decent sound system, good back storage.

Worst Features

Maintenance and reliability. This model is average and will be expensive to fix. The Volvo oil filters are internal canister type - most places won't change your oil and garages will charge extra.
