An expensive lemon
By cyr on
2003 Volvo S40 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
Owned this lemon for 2 years. I trusted
Volvo for its reliability and Volvo did
not deliver it. I have to take this car
for repairs every 3 months on average.
Only 21,000 miles, but I had 6 problems
+ 2 recalls. Everything from windshield
wipers failure in the middle of a
storm, to misalignment of the hood, to
check engine lights on for transmission
problems, to check engine lights on for
unknown reasons, etc..... Brake pads
had to be replaced after 15,000 miles.
Air conditioning recall + transmission
software upgrade recall. To sum it up,
Expensive lemon, unreliable, and poor
At least I can sit in my leather seats
waiting for roadside assistance to show
Quality, reliability, and may be
spinning off from Ford.
