2006 Volvo V50 T5 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


I took delivery of this beauty in Sweden. The price was reduced and lodging was a bargain. Do it if you have the time. I have 13,000 miles on my V50 and I still look forward to driving to work or just driving. It's got lots of pep and it handles like a sports sedan. A couple of upgrades to the firmware took care of some radio and climate control quirks.

Best Features

Handling, acceleration, gas mileage (29 mpg +), safety, Premium Sound!!!!

Worst Features

There is no way to listen to an auxiliary sound source. I installed an in-line FM Modulator - something that the dealership said could not be done - and took care of that little oversight. Not much storage for little things in the front.
