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


Bought the 2005 Volvo V50 T5 for its modern, sleek
center panel, awesome upgraded stereo,
and excellent low-end torque (i.e.
great peppiness when driving). The AWD,
Volvo safety, and beautiful outward
appearance of the car are great. I chose this car over
the the 2005 Subaru Outback (suboptimal
stereo), Mazda 6 (only FWD), and Nissan

Best Features

Modern (aluminum) plasma-screen thin sleek center console, Awesome stereo system (upgraded option) Luxurious comfortable seats. Peppiness when driving! Minimal wind noise.

Worst Features

The suspension on the V50 T5 AWD is too firm. It is not like this on the FWD model. I feel the most minute bumps on roads. Highway driving is fine. I am experiencing an annoying mild vibration noise from passenger seat (when shutting doors and over bumps), but was able to correct this by keeping the seat in a certain position. This car also has suboptimal interior storage.
