Loved it the FIRST year
By Jen G. on
2001 Volvo S40 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
This car was great until I hit 23,000
miles with it. That is when the back
brakes needed to be replaced and also
the tires. Of course none of this
stuff is handled under warranty. I
leased the vehicle specifically so I
wouldn't have to deal with these types
of repairs but no such luck. I also
think this car is a little sensitive to
normal bumps in the road.
It was a fun car until maintenance
became such a problem.
The braking system is horrible and they
obviously put substandard tires on
these vehicles. A little warning would
have been nice at the time of purchase!
