2000 Volvo S40 Turbo 4dr Sedan
I have had a few maintenance problems
but overall very satisfied. Worked
with Volvo of the Triad in Winston-
Salem, NC and Volvo of Dallas in
Carrollton, TX. The sales people (Trey)
at Volvo of the Triad were great to
work with. Totally opposite the
dealership in Greensboro (Crown). Have
referred my brother and two friends to
Volvo of the Trid and they both bought
Volvo's there. Most of my service work
has been with Volvo of Dallas and the
shop supervisor (Aldo) is the best.
Love the heated seats & wipers on the
headlights. Put on about 20k
miles/year and they were all
enjoyable. Turbo is very responsive
with no lag. Mileage is 22 in the city
and 28+ on a drive. Have had good wear
life on brakes & tires and maintenance
has all been done by Aldo's team.
Cupholder is right in front of stereo.
Must remove cup to exchange CD. Must
fumble around cup holder to scan
stations, etc. Too much road noise.
When backing up, headrests block
vision. Black trim on outside tends to
whiten with age. New S40's have
corrected some of the above.
