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


Looked at BMW 3-Series, Audi A4 and
nobody could touch the Volvo value. The
Audi dealership admitted that without
Ford's support, they just couldn't
compete on price. The performance
speaks for itself if you trust the
reviews and specs. We bought the 2005 V50 T5
in lieu of the straight 2.4 only because
of review comments. We drove both and
really couldn't tell the difference
when driving like a sane person. The
additional options that we purchased
were worth it. We got everything but
the navigation pkg. and back up sensors.

Best Features

Rain sensor on windshield wipers and seat/mirror memory. My friend with his Mazda 6 Series wagon saved a few bucks, but is missing the little things that make this car compete with Bimmers, Mercs & Audi's- and now the Jag Wag. Volvo says value and sanity, whereas the Jag may have been a little much

Worst Features

I am worried that the aluminum interior trim is going to scratch. Also, why does the Ford Focus have an input jack for an I-Pod (or other audio input- XM Roady) and none of the luxury models have one? MP3's aren't just for students. All 2005 modelss should be outfitted with a jack by the dealer.
