Great Fun to Drive and looks good too!
By Brian d on


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


I have owned my V50 since May 06. Have already done a few good road trips with it and am not disappointed. 15,000 km so far. Had mine special ordered due to wanting the base model (no sunroof, no traction control etc). Was worth the wait. 5spd shifts like butta and although a high speed pass on a 2 lane hwy may need a downshift, it's a small price to pay. The ONLY beefs I have are a small wind leak in the driver's door, a squeaky clutch pedal, poor driver's side blind spot and useless door pockets (can't even fit a map in there). Great car for the money (better than others in that price range), awesome resale value and a really nice ride. Go try one... you'll like it.

Worst Features
