Still Happy... but have had problems
By HoustonS40 on
2000 Volvo S40 Turbo 4dr Sedan
I bought the car in April of 2002 with 24K and have kept a log and records back to when it rolled of the lot new: 13,001 Miles replaced center caps on wheels; brake warning light on; 14,859 Check Engine light on; Headlight burned out; 20,258 Check engine light on; engine sluggish; brake pads replaced; 24,833 Check engine light on; center caps missing; engine mounts replaced; 24,920 Check engine light on; 25,279 PNP switch replaced; 27,231 replaced vac pump relay; 35,140 left and right front strut bearings replaced; 36,390 Battery replaced; 38,052 New Brake Pads; 42,931 shock absorber/strut replaced; 44,534 vacuum pump; 48,825 coolant sensor & turbo oil return line leaking.
I like having the Turbo as the car is zippy around town. The car is fun to drive.
2000 was the first year for this car in the US. I know that they have made fixes to many of the problems I had or am having in the later models. Improvements to the issues above would be nice.
