The Scrap Man Cometh

That's it, before it kills me, the scrap man cometh.
Driving on a raised section of Montreal's Metropolitan Highway, the engine cut out, again. There was no shoulder to pull over on, but fortunately the engine cut out by an off ramp and I was able to roll down and park up and re-started the car.
I have had this vehicle for less than a year and it has been nothing but trouble but as fortune would have it, I got scraped along the side last winter which prevented me from putting any money into it, it was just not worth it. Engine cutting out, starting issues and just recently a noisy wheel bearing.
I have just purchased a fully loaded 2005 Volvo v15 T5 wagon in excellent condition. What a rocket, 2.5 liters of turbocharged power, sport suspension and 17 inch rims, very exciting to drive, just too much fun for an old geezer.
I'll have to be careful I do not get a speeding ticket.
Regards.

Does the Volvo have a 4 or 5 cylinder engine?

^ T5 means it's a 5 cylinder.

Awesome. 5-cylinder-engines are the coolest!

Yeah, they're pretty nice! My 04 S60 R had a turbocharged I5 as well. It just put out more power than the T5 did.
