Volvo?

3 posts in this topic

Anyone owned something like this?

V50

Might buy a touring next and this showed up on the 'other vehicles you might like'...

Unfortunately I haven't owned or driven one (yet), but those V50 models have caught my eye too.

My 2 cents is that if I buy one, I'll be buying the T5.
If you decide to buy a T5, try to find an AWD one, as they came in FWD too, HTH.

not sure what the appeal of AWD is in Volvos, they're engineered for exceptional traction in the sub-zero conditions of scandanavia... you'd be surprised how much more grip an FWD volvo offers in inclement conditions compared with a similar Subaru.

Volvo parts prices in NZ will have you in tears.  Its also harder to find mechanics that understand them.  I've run an 855-T5 since 2006.  My friend is running an 855-2.0 since 2003, and also runs a V40-T4 wagon, has plenty of fun with it.
