2001 Volvo S40 SE 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
Review
Ever see that movie "The Money Pit"? Well oue S40 is the $$$ pit. I leased this for my wife in 2001. The 1st winter the Winter mode drive locked up. The car was in the shop 2 weeks. The repair writer called to tell me that 2 engineers were coming in from Canada to look at our tranny. Like that's supposed to make you feel better. They replaced the tranny and ever since we've had a slight turbo lag. The steering squeeks, the right dash speaker grill pops up (seen on all 2001's), the side mirror button is wonky, the Service light always comes on, the AC is possessed by the devil. Every scheduled maint or oil change costs over $300. Next time we're buying a BMW.
Favorite Features
Great turbo boost.
Suggested Improvements
Implement some serious Quality Control. You know there are issues when the body and cabin design have changed at least 2x since 2000. The light burned in the gear shift selector. The cupholder placement stinks. It breaks. The buttons/switch, electronic quality is worse than a GM.
