Used 2008 Volvo T5 in Dulles, VA
Reviews for Volvo
Good car in mediocre shape
When I got it the brakes were bad and had to be replaced almost immediately, then the tire blew from a not so serious run-in with a curb and both rear tires had to be replaced. Since then, I've also had to have a belt replaced. Thank goodness I bought a warranty, so I only had to pay for the deductible. I've spent more time getting this car repaired than I did the very old Subaru I sold to get it.
Sometimes even great cars are discontinued.
Superior engineering. elegant folding top. Trunk space! A rear seat people can actually sit in. Comfortable. Great fuel economy. We've owned this car since 2014. We discovered it when we rented one for a couple of weeks in 2012. Taking a two week "test Drive" we really came to appreciate Volvo's engineering and attention to detail with this model. You won't find big screens (or any screens) in this car. It's a drivers car. Handling is very predicable and as I noted braking is the best I've ever felt. With the top down wind buffeting is minimal. The 5 cylinder turbocharged engine runs on regular fuel and is designed to enhance fuel economy. Power is more than adequate for any legal driving. Highly recommended.
1st Time Volvo Owner
Although on the smaller side, the car has plenty of room to seat 4 adults comfortably. We have a newborn and the car seat's size requires the passenger seat to be moved up but still allows for plenty of leg room for the passenger. The car is stylish and removed from the boxier look of previous Volvo models. The interior is what makes the car over the top. Seats are comfortable leather and easily adjustable. Plenty of headroom and I am over 6ft tall. The sound system is great and does not need an aftermarket upgrade. The dash display is a crisp gray background with digital white letters/numerals. It handles well and has plenty of get up and go. I average over 24 mpg with most of my driving in town.
