2007 Volvo V50 T5 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Superbly designed vehicle that is an absolute blast to drive. Mine is the "Full Monty" T5 AWD with buttery-smooth 6 speed manual. Seems like every design and engineering detail was painstakingly tested and mulled over to best benefit the driver. Gives me 85% of the performance I expect from my '85 Porsche 911. I can haul my ever-growing toddler son in his Recaro sport seat and my two 90 lb. Weimaraners (very tall, large dogs). A great-looking vehicle as well that really grabs on-lookers' attention. Most people think of AWD for icy, snowy environments, but here in L.A., I like it for added performance - goodbye torque steer, understeer, oversteer, etc. A total beast.

Best Features

Torque-y engine, tight suspension corners like a mother. Smoothest, easiest manual you will ever drive. Even in stop and go traffic, does not buck until you are almost at 0 mph.

Worst Features

Yeah, the ride can be bumpy on grooved freeways. Rear seats can be snug. Nit picks: rear doors could open a tad wider for kids, dogs. Doesn't do my taxes or take out the garbage.
