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


I purchased this car in 2001 - my first new car! Since that time, I have replaced brake pads front and back each year since ownership. My check engine light continues to come on and no one can figure out why. Other repairs include fuel pump, rotors, every light bulb in car, thermostat, fuses and other minor things. I purchased this car for safety and my concern now is that with all of the repairs that I have made (most of them on-road surprises), that this car actually compromises the safety of the driver - not protects it.

Best Features

Car is comfortable and fun to drive when it is not in the shop!

Worst Features

Put two cup holders in the front of the car is needed! Not to mention if you have a heavy cup of coffee in the front cup holder and take a left hand turn it can fall out of the holder and into the passenger seat floor.
