2006 Volvo V50 T5 AWD
|Reviewed By||SCM Staff|
|Price as Tested||$33,355|
|Likes||Very sharp-looking for a wagon, lots of creature comforts, clean instrument panel, ability to set preferences such as how long the lights stay on after you turn off the car.|
Couldn't get my foot to the gas pedal without bumping the brake pedal, under-powered for the T5 option, not a stable car at upper highway speeds.
Driving through Montana at 90 mph was not the smooth sailing it should be in a new car. I felt that I had to have both hands on the wheel at all times, in the ten-and-two position. A full-size pick-up beat me down a mountain pass because the car did not instill confidence in taking freeway corners at speed. For a wagon, it’s a nice-looking car, but I'll leave it at home if I take another 2,200-mile road trip.
