2003 Volvo S40 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
Review
The motor is strong with no lag. The turbo is fully spooled at 1750RPM, the Torque converter stall speed is well above that. The trans shifts according to the type of driver you are and adapts quickly.. it will even anticipate desired acceleration after a turn/obstacle, and downshift before you get on the gas.The suspension in this car does not compare to any car that I have ever driven (I also own a Porsche 911). It quite simply, is phenomenal. The geometry is PERFECT. The car always feels planted. You can never misunderstand what the car is doing or what the car can do. It goes where you point it.
Favorite Features
Previously, the price was an issue. With Redesign scheduled in fall (will be sharing platform with non other than -- the Ford Focus), prices have plummeted making the S40 THE BEST potential buy in the sporty driving/must be automatic/4dr FOR UNDER 25K catagory.
Suggested Improvements
Cooler instument cluster colors... nothing compares to the V-dub for the blue/red combo they use.
