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

Review

We bought this car for my wife. Thought Volvo meant reliability and safety. Headlights had to be replaced 4 times. Check engine light would never go off. Brakes wore out after 15,000 mi. Ashtray door jammed shut. Cupholders were an afterthought. Tires wore down after 20k miles and had to be replaced. This car became very high maintainance. I've had less trouble with my Jag. Don't buy this if you need a reliable car. I never got response from Volvo North America after I wrote them 3 times about my c

Best Features

Great exterior styling. Alot of get up and go

Worst Features

Improve break pads. Use a better tire. Redesign cupholder location(this is im- portant). Do something about check engine light and headlight burnouts
