Smooth meets tight
By Car guy on
Vehicle2001 Volvo S40 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewThus far, my experience with the S40
has been completely rewarding.
Notwithstanding the one problem I had
with the passenger airbag being
defective -- which is something I
wouldn't really expect from a Volvo --
this car is an all-around gem. It
combines tight european handling and
turbo-charged power with excellent fuel
economy and distinctive styling.
Quality is clearly a cut above most any
American car, and certainly better than
any car in its price range (including
the Accord, Passat, and Camry).
Best FeaturesResponsiveness, especially at highway speeds; Quality; Handling; Tight all- around engineering; Safety features; Large sunroof; Classic styling; Trunk features
Worst FeaturesAn affordable factory-installed Volvo CD player; Heavier doors; Reliable A/C charger; Electrical issues (check engine light, airbag light)
