Not worth the $$$
By Brendan Kelly on
2002 Volvo S40 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
I have had this car for almost two
years and have had it in the shop on at
least 5 occasions due to manufacture
defects. True, I've had no serious
problems, but after driving a Honda and
Nissan into the ground with nary a
problem, this is new territory for me.
I had to replace the brakes after only
12,000 miles and Volvo tried to
convince me that this is normal!
The 15K tune-up cost me almost $500.
Since I'll exceed 45,000 during my 39
month lease, I'll have to pay almost
$1,500 to have the tires rotated and
the filters replaced.
