A solid, conservative ride.

Vehicle2002 Volvo S40 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewThis 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.
Best FeaturesPluses: 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.
Worst FeaturesMinuses: 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.
