2004 Volvo S40 Sedan 2.4i 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5A)


Review

I've had my car for only a couple weeks, enjoy it so far. Rides smoothly, handles nice, good zip, conservative exterior good looks have made some turn their heads. Drove over a portion of highway that had been stripped in order to repave, fairly considerable buzzing in the driver's side pillar, though normally it doesn't. Noticed a very slight squeek when coming to stop, not sure if it's brakes. I also considered the Acura TSX and also came down to styling, TSX looks too much like an Accord, the dealer wasn't very friendly, nor would they respond to my email queries. The Volvo staff were very friendly, not pushy and were willing to negotiate via email.


Best Features

safety features, center console display for stereo, AC, rain sensing wipers, good looks, fairly roomy trunk. I literally saw someone do a walk around while I was in the grocery store the other day


Worst Features

more storage, I need a coin holder!!!! , put clock on center console display, not used to seeing it above the tac

Review

I didn't get the turbo because I didn't need the extra speed. So far I love the new body style and I feel very safe in it. It's a safe car which looks classy yet doesn't look like an older person's car. The service at Warren Henry in Miami was amazing and they beat out the best price any where else. It's a car that I can invision placing my future kids in and yet not make me feel like I had to sacrifice a youthful car.


Best Features

Dashboard, climate and premium package, wood package, rear spoiler, safety features.I thought it was a perfect car for a single professional woman in her 30's that's tired of sports cars and is ready for the next chapt in her life. It was designed by a woman so a lot of features-dash i


Worst Features

Perhaps a cover for the cup holders and a few more features added that the s60 has. Perhaps a different color background on the dash-it's green. It would be nice if it drove a little smoother and it was hard to buy individual features without having to buy a package which was expensiv

Review

I have owned this car for about a month and a half and I love it. The performace is outstanding and easily outclasses the competition in the price range. The styling is great, it looks nothing like the Volvos of old. Also the gas milage is great given this is a high performace car. Volvo has definitely built a winner of a car and attracted a new audience.


Best Features

2.5L Turbo Charged engine, Premium Audio System, Body Style and gas milage.


Worst Features

MP3 capable CD player. I really wished the horn would sound when the car locks. Other than that the car is great.
