I've owned this car for over a year and
had to replace the brake pads twice.
I've just about experienced every
negative comment that is written in the
reviews: from replacement of bulbs,
wind noise, rattles, brakes, engine
lights, etc. It is a great car in many
ways, but the reliability is horrible.
Although the S40 is cheaper than most
of the foreign cars on the market when
compared to BMW, Audi, MB etc..the cost
of repairs and regular maintenance can
be astronomical once the warranty
expires. I would definetly not suggest
this vehicle to anyone.
