Review

Poor location for the cup holder and window controls. Outside noise louder than I'm use to for a car in this price range and class.

Review

This is a fun-to-drive car. Very solid vehicle. Best car I've ever owned. Very responsive turbo; can pass virtually any vehicle on the road at speeds of 60 - 80 mph.

Excellent Road/City Car

Review

Our S40 experience is quite good. The car really handles tight city driving with great maneuverability, and responsiveness, then on to the freeways with no problems. It's got solid handling, good in all types of weather Yeah, the check engine has come on sometimes when I started the engine, then goes off after awhile but nothing to obsess about and is being fixed by Volvo.

Disappointed

Review

Purchased car because of Volvo's reputation and great price for the options. I had to change brakes after 1st year, and I'm looking at another replacement on this second year. Dealer confessed that Volvo had a poor braking design warranteed the first set of brakes. Cup hold is in the way of the radio.

Fun To Drive If Not In Shop

Review

The car is definitely fun to drive but the minor problems that require it to be in the shop so often is a real nuisance. Examples are fading volume in radio (replaced once but problem is still there), faulty brake and check engine lights, AC makes funny noise, rattling of sideview mirrors at 65mph, replaced all four brakes @20,000 miles, replaced headlights @15,000 miles, etc. This car has only 32K miles and has been in the shop more often than my Geo Prism, which has 160K miles.

S40'd Out

Review

I've owned my S40 since March of 2000. Since owning it I've replaced the brakes every 10,000 miles give or take a few, the bulbs are constantly burning out, the front cup holder blocks the stereo, I get poor gas mileage, and it seems to be in the shop all of the time. On the upside, the seats are comfy for a car it's size, and it has a peppy engine, and it's relatively fun to drive. Priced with options, it can run fairly expensive. Sorry Volvo, you need some work on this little one.

Lemon

Review

Ive had the car for two years and only have 9,000 miles on it. Saying that you would figure it would be in good shape, wrong. This is the list of my problems so far... lights, seat,speaker, cupholder,tires,stalling, faulty breaks at 6,000 miles, a new break problem now, gear shift sticks, wipers.... the list goes on. I have one more year on the lease and think Im gonna get rid of it even thought I will loose money. This is a lemon, it has been in the shop sooooo many times. Save yourself and by something else!!!!!!!

Fun, but not the quality expected

Review

The S40 is excellent with road perfromance, but the continuous maintenance really takes away from the fun. This car, in 2 years, has been in the shop more than any other car I've owned. Very disappointed - 2 brake sets, four new headlamps($15.00 each), malfunctioning engine maintenance light, stuck cup holder (that's useless) and that's not all. Good car for people with lots of money and free time to spend in the shop. I hang on to it because it is a pleasure to drive.
