2001 Volvo S40 Sedan 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I have had my Volvo for a couple of years now and I am getting ready to sell her (upgrade). I must say that this car was an incredible purchase, I bought the car so that I could use it as a travel car and ended up using it full time because it was such a nice car. I would recomend this vehicle to anyone that loves the luxury of nice product but does not have the money to get a BMW/Merc


Best Features

Fold down seats, gas mileage, controls, reliability... many more


Worst Features

Cup holder is in an odd spot.

2001 Volvo S40 Sedan 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

Fun to drive, great gas mileage, easy to park, as safe as the bigger Volvos... This car is fantastic. We've had it almost 5 years, and have NO interest in getting a replacement. Has been super reliable, versatile for a sedan (folding seats, etc.), and the lines are great. We also bought a V40 at the same time, and only sold it to get a bigger wagon. These cars are easy to love.


Best Features

Great acceleration and responsive engine with really good mileage. Fun to drive, safe. Handling & mileage!


Worst Features

Take the rear headrests out for better visibility.

2001 Volvo S40 Sedan 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I have owned a 2001 Volvo S40 for over 5 years now, and it is still runs the same as when I drover her off the lot. The car has a great interior, is fun to drive, and is the best value for its price range. It was cheaper than the BMW, Mercedes, Audi, and Acura equivalents and comparable in features. It may not turn the eyes as much as an Audi, but it is a rock solid car. I had a friend that bought a 2001 Audi A4 Quattro that has been in the shop 10 times more than my car.


Best Features

I very much enjoy the simple, yet elegant, interior that has a functional dash with controls that have never failed.


Worst Features

The back seat is cramped for adult passengers.

2001 Volvo S40 Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I've enjoyed this car it has made commuting fun again. Most people when they think volvo think safety or grandpas car, does your grandpas car have a zero to sixty in under 7 seconds. Great performance reliability and it's comfy too.


Best Features

1.9L turbo charged engine supplys plenty of power when wanted and still gets excellent Gas Mileage


Worst Features

more cup holders and trunk space. Larger 6\9 speakers instead of 5 1\4. more power but that has been taken care of by the new model.

Review

Bought this car used about a month ago and can wait to get rid of it, worst designed car i have ever been in, cup holder blocks most of console controls, 12v plug dosent work, really strange noises come from engine compartment-sounds like someone is pulling a heavy box across the ground every once in a while when i am stopped at a light, the engine "bumps" between 30-40mph when i let off the gas and then accelerate again- used to have a maxima- same year- but crashed it- should have bought another maxima- this car is garbage- dont buy it!!


Best Features

european exterior


Worst Features

dont hire drunk engineers to design this car!!
