2000 Volvo S40 Turbo 4dr Sedan
In 5 years of owning this care my ex and I have put over 2 grand into repairs, now I have another 3 grand to go. Engine mounts, strut cushions, bushings, sunroof, sway bar, breather box, and catalytic converter all need to be replaced. My front passenger door no longer opens from the outside, and like mentioned before the back door locks stick. The cup holder position makes no sense to me and one of the weather strips on the top of the car flew off while on the freeway and is 150 to replace. I love Volvo but there's something wrong with this car!
I love the body, the ride before it started falling apart was great, the turbo feels great when picking up speed and I love the leather seats.
I'm really hoping that Volvo reliability isn't on a permanant decline and that Ford buying them out didn't ruin their hard earned status.
