s40 and brake pads
By leo22 on
Vehicle
2003 Volvo S40 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
Review
my s40 has been through 3 sets of rear brake pads in 50,000 miles, and 1 set of rotors. Who ever heard of rear brake pads only lasting 12 to 15 thousand miles. Volvo claims this is normal wear for our pads and that there is no problems with the braking system. I have also replaced the front pads once they seem to hold better. I have also had other miscelanious problems i.e. bad fuel injectors replaced, gas gauge replaced, and several light bulbs. Overall this car has not been a very pleasant experience and I can't wait to get out of my lease.
Favorite Features
car drives and handles great lots of fun to drive. very fast for a four cylinder turbo.
Suggested Improvements
new braking system with pads that last longer than 12-15 thousand miles.
