I've owned my S40 since March of 2000.
Since owning it I've replaced the
brakes every 10,000 miles give or take
a few, the bulbs are constantly burning
out, the front cup holder blocks the
stereo, I get poor gas mileage, and it
seems to be in the shop all of the
time. On the upside, the seats are
comfy for a car it's size, and it has a
peppy engine, and it's relatively fun
to drive. Priced with options, it can
run fairly expensive. Sorry Volvo, you
need some work on this little one.
