The coalescence of 5G networks and vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANETs) will result in intelligent transportation and safety services and in-vehicle entertainment services. As a result, the plethora of connected devices (cars, mobile phones and other communication devices/sensors) will benefit from off-loading of network data on unlicensed bands to support network load balancing, providing guaranteed bit rate services and a reduction in control signaling, hence improving the overall user experience. In this paper we briefly discuss the enabling technologies, various communication scenarios within the 5G-VANET and the crucial user experience perspective. It should be noted that service acceptance depends heavily on user opinion formulated as per their experience. We further address the multi-layer Quality of Experience (QoE) assessment model and propose the way forward to enhance user experience within 5G-VANET. Since it is a work in progress, we discuss the importance of how and where the network performance measurements should be made and their effect on the overall user experience with future contributions in form of network simulations.
