2003 Volvo S40 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

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 service

Favorite Features

At least I can sit in my leather seats waiting for roadside assistance to show up.

Suggested Improvements

Quality, reliability, and may be spinning off from Ford.
