I never knew of this site until today. I know its been a few years since your post, but I thought it was neat to find someone else who got the T5 AWD, with 6 speed manual & leather. That's my car too ! . This was my first Volvo purchase, really enjoying the car. Am interested to know how you like the car. Just had my 30K service.

I'm reasearching the above vehicle.
My wife likes the Nissan Murano Se, I like the volvo V50 2005.
We are comparing the 2 for both known/common problems and regular maintenance costs. We are located in Canada.
We are both not the self fixing type when it comes to vehicles. At the same time we don't want to get into a vehicle with huge maintenance/repair costs.
A few mechanic friends have seen a few Murano's in their shop after 100,000km for tranny trouble CVT.
I was told that the Volvo, was a pretty solid vehicle and if cared for can last a long time.
We don't want to get into a situation where we are paying $1000.00 everytime we open the hood.
I was told by the Volvo sales rep that its around $60 for an oil change(synthetic) and needs to be changed every 12000km.
She wasn't able to tell me if this vehicle had Xenon Headlights and or what the costs would be to change somewhat simple things like headlight bulbs etc.
Can anyone care to comment on the costs of regular maintenance to expect on the V50 2005, and also the costs of such things as headlights/rear lights etc?

Hi, I am thinking of buying a V50 2.4i through the Overseas Delivery Program. They have come out with the 2011 pricing, but V50 is only offered as a turbo. What are the drawbacks of turbo versus conventional engine? I am worried about reliability of Volvo and the cost of repairs. any advice?

Too bad Volvo no longer offers awd turbo manual V50! I'd like one in a "fast" diesel.
#219 of 220 Is the 2011 V50 In Production?
Mar 16, 2011 (8:38 pm)
I've been searching on Autotrader and sites throughout Texas to find a 2011 or 2010 and have only found one new one so far making me think this car is not in production yet or has been canceled. Will be calling volvo tomorrow to see what's up.
Anyone out there know anything about production availability?

Yes, they built 2011s. I don't know how many, but they now ceased per a dealer's post on swedespeed.
