2004 Volvo S40 2.4i 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5A)
The overall fit and finish of this car is sexy. I've
had nothing but stares and compliments since
purchasing this vehicle. Many are amazed to find
that it's a Volvo. The commute is smooth and
quiet. I can't say too much about acceleration,
however, because I've been breaking the car in
slowly - but I read that the car reacts quickly and
examines your driving style (aggressive/passive)
and adjusts to accomodate accordingly.
I love both the outside and inside. Volvo has gotten
it right this time around. I like the 12 speaker
sound system, slim console design, auto up/down
for all windows, audio controls on the steering
wheel, and appoach/homesafe lighting (simply
beautiful at night).
Move the audio controls to the lefthand side of the
steering wheel, and the cruise buttons to the right.
I think people will use the audio buttons more than
the cruise buttons, and the audio buttons are more
easily accessible on the lefthand side, especially if
you're driving a manual.
