ReviewMy wife and I purchased our 2001 S40 in September and have very much enjoyed owning it. The 1.9L turbo charged engine provides great acceleration and the ride quality of the S40 is very smooth, even over rough surfaces. The service light issue, many other reviews have mentioned, was easily fixed by a recall from Volvo and a quick software upgrade to the carís internal computer. The S40ís relatively low price and long list of standard features offers BMW's 3 Series and Audi's A4 solid competition in the upscale entry-level sedan realm. The passenger compartment of the S40 is well-finished and its large trunk provides ample cargo capacity.
Best FeaturesOverall quality Handling and acceleration Interior/exterior design Color (Panama Yellow)
Worst FeaturesLike many other reviews I don't like the placement of the cup holder, but since I don't really use the cup holder, it's not an issue. Volvo has apparently been listening to consumers as they have rectified this problem in the 2002 and 2003 models.
