I bought my S40 to be a work car. I
drive 90 miles round trip, mostly
highway, and wanted a car with better
fuel economy than my Expedition. So
far, the Volvo fits the bill. It's very
fun to drive and gets great gas
mileage. I compare it to a Scirroco VW
I had in the early 80's...very peppy
without the requirement of needing to
sleep in the back seat overnight on the
side of the road due to breakdowns!!!
Plus, my stepson has already informed
me he likes it more than his dad's S60!!
peppy engine...very tight construction
needed more cup holders than just
2....I've got 3 kids!!!!
