Very good if you consider my particular T5 was over £30,000 new, but the market is not as good as it was.
Parts pricey, Servicing ok, Insurance very good, especially for a 21 year old! Poor economy, expect 20-23 mpg with normal driving plus the odd boot.
On the road
Fantastic, solid, poised and very confidence inspiring once you're used to it's size. Mine has the factory sports suspension so slightly lower then standard and corners surprisingly well.
Not quite as fast as people make out, especially compared to more modern cars but very quick off the mark and really grin inducing torquey acceleration. Autos run out of puff at 120+ but you shouldn't be going that fast anyway!
Living with it
Good if looked after but there is lots to go wrong, service history a big must.
Not bad but some are looking rough now, cared for models inoffensive and a vast improvement on older Volvos!
Driving position excellent with everything to hand, seats for adults in perfect comfort. Ride a bit harsh but very very smooth on a good road.
Security and Service
Alarm and Immobiliser common on the T5 but I don't think they we're standard.
Problems and Ownership
SRS (airbag) warning light, cured by getting my garage to clean the airbag module contacts.
Did you buy the car new?
Would you buy the same model again?
Did you buy from the same manufacturer again?
