2000 Volvo S40 Turbo 4dr Sedan

Review

My wife wanted it for "safey," but she quickly was sorry we bought it. Of course, I ended up with it. Many problems with electrical systems during the first two years. The interior is smallish in the front. I would never think of sitting in back...my two kids in car seats barely fit back there. The dash design is poor--the cup holder hangs in front of CD player so you can't change disks without risking a major spill. As another reviewer noted, the cup holder is a junky design, and the hardware doesn't work properly. Same goes for rear holder. Ashtray poorly placed--hits gear shift when taking it out, so you have to put into gear to empty trash. Pain chips easy. Rubber door trim is disaster

Best Features

...But, I also like the kick when it's in "sport" transmition mode. Fun to drive fast on the highway. With all the little minor problems, after a while, you feel like you're back in high school driving a dumpy car...so you don't mind the fact it's a mess, spill drinks, and don't wash it much.

Worst Features

Interior dash design needs improvement. Basic hardware on interior cabin needs serious help. Fix door trim. Paint needs improvement.
