2000 Volvo S40 Turbo 4dr Sedan
This was my first car-- so excited to have a safe and reliable car. Little did I know it would cost me THOUSANDS in credit card debt to maintain it. My headlights burn out in a couple of months, the CEL NEVER shuts off, the windshield wipers need to be replaced frequently (courtesy of New England weather). I spend all of my money on Volvo Techs diagnosing my problems, fixing them, and then finding a new one the next day. It's really been a nightmare- if anyone has any advice, I would love to hear it.
The leather seats, sunroof, nice sound system. Overall, it's a reliable car-- just impossible to pass inspection... thanks check engine light.
What's up with the CEL light? And why do the headlights always burn out? My backseat locks are stuck all the time... just a few suggestions
