Volvo V50 2008 Overview

The compact V50 wagon and its S40 sedan sibling are based on the same front-wheel-drive platform as the Mazda 3 and the Ford Focus, all of which come under the Ford umbrella. Yet Volvo claims that the V50 is a true Volvo, asserting unique premium features only found in the Volvo. The V50 is an obviously small car, but it looks a lot like its larger siblings with its signature new-age-Volvo styling. There are three engine choices, all of them the corporate oddball five-cylinder, except for the base 1.6-litre four-cylinder with manual gearbox. The range includes a basic 2.4-litre and a higher-tuned 2.4-litre, all offered with automatic with tiptronic in this region. Markets outside this region get all-wheel-dive models too. The interior has an ultra-slim centre console that seems to be free-floating, with extra storage space behind it. The safety package includes a patented zonal front structure using differing strengths of high-strength steel to disperse force away from passengers in a crash. Dual front airbags, SIPS side impact protection, curtain airbags and WHIPS whiplash protection are all standard.

Known Problems Early models had problems with electronic key getting stuck in dashboard port, fixed under warranty. First-year early models got software upgrade for automatic gearbox to improve performance. Random computer faults pop up occasionally, sometimes reducing engine power. Remote locking, power windows and a/c controls seem to have issues. In pre-2007 models, battery may die overnight if the stereo won't allow the central control module go into sleep mode.
