2000 Volvo S40 Turbo 4dr Sedan

Review

Purchased car in 1999, the 1st year model was offered. The car performed well the first 1 1/2 yrs of ownership although we needed 1st of 3 brake jobs at 8,000 mi. In 2001 the car turned into a lemon overnight. Head lamps failed premature. Brake pump failed which was followed up with recall 3 yrs later. The front/rear end started to crack and pop when making turns. As a result the dealership replaced front strut towers and found that eng. mounts were broken. Poping noise in the rear was caused by missing bushings in rear suspension. Dealership said bushings were left out at the factory. The check eng. light has been on more often than not. I'm tired of replac

Favorite Features

Impressed with the handeling, quick pick up and sport style.

Suggested Improvements

Not a true Volvo since it was built in the Netherlands with another automaker. If you own this model, get rid of it! If you are thinking about purchasing the 2000 S40, forget about it.
