Short of Expectations
By Clay Bittner on
2000 Volvo S40 Turbo 4dr Sedan
I thought when buying the S40 that I
was stepping up to a luxury automobile
that would cross over into the service
provided etc. I definitely thought
wrong. The buying and service
experience I had with my second car (an
Infiniti) was far more enjoyable than
the Volvo experience. Owning my Volvo
was a similar experience to my
experiences owning a Honda which is not
what I thought I was getting into.
Probably will not own or lease another
Volvo. Looking back I should have gone
for the Infiniti G20 instead although
the car has been "OK".
Pep in the engine. Interior feel.
Cloth seats are pathetic. If you spill
water on them you have a stain that is
very difficult to remove.
