Culturally confused but very nice

Vehicle2003 Volvo S40 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewI have never owned a Ford product. I have never owned a Volvo. I've never owned a Mitsubishi product. I've never owned a car built in Holland. One purchase covered all of those voids. That said, the car is well built, and gutsy. It's my wife's driver and she loves it. My only complaint with the car is that the 4 cylinder is a little noisy. But I've driven few 4 cylinders that didn't sound like sewing machines.
Best FeaturesOverall exterior design. I used to hate Volvos. Called them "Swedish Tractors". Ugly ugly ugly. The new generations of car show some style and "American" influence. Whether it's Ford's ownership or they simply had to come into the 21st century, they've done a nice job with the styling.
Worst FeaturesThe 4 bolt wheels look a little cheap. The castings are good and the styling is fine, make them 5 bolt. Overall, no major complaints or concerns.
