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

Review

This car was purchased for my wife in 12/00 with the expectation that we would have a baby before the end of the lease. We truly enjoyed the car, however the addition of our daughter has changed our feelings towards the S40. It is simply not large enough for two adults and one baby. With the baby seat in the rear-facing position behind the passengers' seat, my wife has to move the passengers' seat almost all of the way forward, which is obviously not comfortable. Also, we had to replace the brake pads at 13,000 miles, and tires at 22,000 miles.

Favorite Features

The seat warmers are beautiful. This car is equipped with the latch system for the baby seat. The leather is top- grade material. Build quality and ride are exceptional.

Suggested Improvements

Remote trunk opener or interior trunk release should be standard. Cup holders are absolutely horrible. Routine maintenance (tires, brakes) need to be less frequent.
