Overall it's been a reliable, fun
little car. I've read some of the
horror stories from other reviews, I
haven't experienced any of these. I
bought the S40 and a Cross Country the
same day. Volvo of Pleasanton, CA has
a great sales stff but go elsewhere
for service, trust me! The only
problem I've had with the car is the
shift-lock mechanism getting stuck.
