2002 Volvo S40 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

This is a really good, safe, conservative car. Emphasis is on safety features, not much offered in the way of luxury gadgets. If you are looking for an entry level volvo, its not a bad start. If you want fun toys, you'll be disappointed. But then again, compared to the more gadgety offerings in the same price range (say VW for instance) one should consider reliability issues. So far I have not encountered a single problem with my solid, if a bit stodgy S40.

Favorite Features

Pluses: 1. Reliable - never had a problem with anything. 2. Good gas mileage with a sprightly engine thanks to the light pressure turbo. 3. Safety first. 4. Comfortable seats. 5. Simple well placed controls.

Suggested Improvements

Minuses: 1. Substantial body roll in tight turns. 2. Stock 160/65 tires too small. 3. Trunk lip severely limits cargo capacity (s40). 4. Poor rear visibility.
