"This car is very reliable and takes off like a bullet! This car starts up every morning and this is very important because I am a snow bird from up north. The only down fall the head rests that are in the back seat have to be removed pronto!"

Love this car!

"This car is amazing to drive, great handling, it is fast and at 9 years old it still gets comments on what a good looking car it is. We are a long line of Volvo owners, so I know a thing or two about them and the issues certain models have. Another model we own is the V50, I also give it two thumbs up, but with Volvos, always go for a turbo model the difference is huge!"

Pros: "acceleration, luxury interior, sound system, space"

Cons: "turning radius, cost to own, repairs"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 5

"So far at 100K with my 2006 T5 I have had a small amount of issues. ABS module is faulty, O2 sensor went bad. However randomly the car doesn't want to work. Once the car died in the middle of the highway, once in a parking garage, and once it wouldn't start at all. The first time we towed the car to the local Volvo dealer, they ran every test they could and could find no issues, the car started right up for them. Essentially we paid $180 for a mediocre car wash. Besides those issues the car has been a blast to drive, with plenty of room for passengers and luggage. Great acceleration and breaking power but one heck of a turning radius (larger than an Escalade). Love the car, but just too much of a hassle in the long term."

Pros: "Fun to drive, great value, amazing pick up, safe"

Cons: "repair cost, turning radius, premium gas"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I absolutely love this car. Luxury from the bucket heated seats all the way to the premium sound system. Moon roof, climate control and all the options availible. Drives like a dream, quick and reliable. The turbo smokes mustangs on a daily basis. Safe and made of steel. You can really feel the weight of the car when you press the traction control button, it feels glued to the road in snow, absolutely no sliding. Only down fall is the repairs will get expensive as the car ages. Also the turning radius is bad and premium gas can get expensive. Highly recommended for entry level luxury car with some serious pick up speeds and safety."

"Comfortable, affordable, luxury, safety, power, this thing is nice. Bought it for my wife and I am jealous. It is extremely fun to drive and a solid car. the ONE complaint we both have is with a defect in the R design which makes the turn radius horrible. But if you can get over that, this car is an amazing drive."
