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

Review

Bought it 1 year old from the Volvo dealer and paid 20% less than if we had bought it new. Excellent value at that price. Pretty good acceleration and handling, although the ride can be a bit stiff on irregular surfaces. Engine a bit noisy at low (parking lot) speeds. Braking is excellent, although I agree with other reviewers that they wear down prematurely. Well-designed interior; e.g. hook on the left passenger's side (on which to hang a jacket)is placed so that the blind spot is not obstructed. Cruise control is easy to use. Cup holders though are useless. Not as well built as the A4 but we paid much less than the A4.

Favorite Features

Nice interior finish and good acceleration. For the price we paid,excellent value.

Suggested Improvements

remote trunk release steering wheel audio controls better cup holders *lockable* rear seat backs (to protect items in the trunk)
