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

Review

I leased this new S40 in March 2001. Within the first year I had to replace a rear rotor due to a factory defect. During the second year with 10,000 miles on the car I needed new rear rotors and brake pads costing close to $500. I am currently fighting with Volvo to reimburse me. During the second year the shift light blew out, the front headlight had to be replaced, the power seat broke and needed a new switch, the steering colum needed repairs. The check engine light goes on and off continously, and the air conditioning is terrible. I would never consider another VOLVO and advise all to stay away!

Best Features

The engine has plenty of power.

Worst Features

Make a car that is not only safe but that holds up. It does no good to have a safe car that you can't drive because it is constantly in the shop for repairs.
