2000 Volvo S40 Sedan Turbo 4dr Sedan


Review

I love my S40 and have never had a serious problem with it. Why are people complaining about the size of the car? If you want it to be bigger, get an S60 or 80! Yes, the cupholder position sucks but it has all been changed. This was the first year that the car was released in the US, and is bound to have some design flaws, but they have all been fixed in the newer models. Maybe if people were less abusive with their car, then they would not have problems. Also, the price of maintenance is high because ITS A EUROPEAN AUTOMOBILE!!!! What do you expect. If you can't afford maintenance, buy an american car.


Best Features

Fun to drive, comfortable, reliable, safe. The best car I've ever owned.


Worst Features

Cupholder of course but this has been fixed in later models.

Review

I bought this car the first month that it became available in the US. It has been a reliable, quality car during this time. The headlights did burn out rather soon (but only require a new bulb that dealership gives away). I got the winter/leather package and this has made all the difference. Heated seats and traction control make it a great winter car, turbo and nice wheels/tires make it a great driving car too. Priced against the Audi A4 and BMW 3 series, this was a much better deal.


Best Features

Compact, zippy urban car. Affordably luxurious.


Worst Features

Make front hood less vulnerable to crashes. Someone backed into my hood and did $ 4000.00 worth of damage.

Review

I don't know where all these whiners come from,i have had no issues with my Volvo since day one.It's top of the line ASR with luxury premium winter package.People....do not abuse your cars and it will last without problems.Change oil,do not accelerate heavy on the first 20000 miles.Let it breake-in.Do not assume if it is import luxury you can abuse.Like i have said i had no issues whatsoever.Great handling on the snow with heated seats and DSA.you don't pay a BMW price either and it's front wheel drive


Best Features

DSA,heated seats,handling


Worst Features

Cupholder in the stupid position.What else do you expect from american designers?

Review

Driving this car is a pleasure. It is the perfect mix of safety features, dependability, style and comfort. I have had only minor problems, (rattling sunroof, bulbs burning out) that were quickly fixed by the dealer. It is the easiest and most fun car I have ever owned!
