Dont judge a book by it cover
By Dave B on


2006 Volvo V50 2.4i 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5A)


The car looks great and is fun to drive, but I was spoiled by our Volkswagen Jetta in the reliability department. The Volvo V 50 has required work since we bought it- wiring harness issues, sun roof leak that we learned will cannot be fully rectified, gas cap issues-would not pass inspection, battery issues, anti- theft-immobilizer issues. The inconvenience is one thing, but now that it is out of warranty, I worry it is going to cost us a great deal to keep it on the road. This will be the first and last Volvo for us.

Best Features

Appearance and drive.

Worst Features

Perhaps less bells and whistles electronic wise; perhaps simpler is better in this case. Certainly Volvo needs to improve the reliability of the electrical and electronic systems.
