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


I like driving the V50. The problem with it is the electronices. Had to have the air worked on twice under warranty thank God. The home link, the air conditioning, radio and the cruise control have all needed computer updates. I'm afraid of what will happen when it goes off warranty. Less than 5,000 miles left. I was also told that Volvo doesn't offer extended warranties. I would have to buy one of the after market warranties. The cost of regular maintenance is high. The maintenance today costs me over $500. That was an oil change, cabin filter change, coolant flush and front brake pads.

Best Features

Fun to drive, lots of get up and go.

Worst Features

They need to get it together on the electronics.
