I wanted a Volvo since I was a kid and
was quite surprised when I got
financed into an S40 at agreeable
terms. The maintenance schedule is a
little high, I must admit, but in my
opinion it's worth it. In one year,
I've put about 20,500 miles on the
car. (This will go down as I moved
closer to the city). Very comfortable,
very solid, and fun to drive. Like it
a lot but will upgrade to a station
wagon (V70)when I can.
Strong, sturdy feel. Sport mode makes
driving it even more fun and exciting.
Gray leather interior with wooden-
colored trim is gorgeous!
Cupholder above CD player...??? Brake
dust can be bad, control layout
improved on recent models, not perfect
for 2000 (most minor complaint).
