I wish I could love this car

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


I have a love/hate relationship with this car. It's the fourth Volvo I've owned and I can tell quality has gone seriously downhill. Yes, the car is fun to drive WHEN it's not at the shop getting repaired. I've had the car for 2.5 years and it is in the shop with various problems about once every 6 weeks, most of the time with recurring problems that miraculously don't show up when it's at the dealership. The car is comfortable, quite roomy and sporty. I love that it's faster than it looks. I just really wish that the car was more reliable. This will be the last Volvo for me. I'm getting rid of it as soon as the warranty's up as I don't think I'll be able to afford the constant repairs!

Best Features

The look of the car and the peppiness of the engine. Comfortable seats and feeling of being firmly planted on the road while driving, even on the highway.
