I just traded my 2000 S40 for a 2004
S40. The dealer and the automobile
are 1st Class. The small things I did
not like about my 2000 such as location
of window and mirror controls and cup
holders have been improved greatly.
The car also has a 5 speed automatic
now and is much smoother and quiter.
Some slight body changes make the car
better than the 2000 model. A great
car has been made almost perfect!
Perfect would require about 200HP and
Turbo motor but vertually no turbo lag!
Exterior styling is very European.
Again 200 HP and 200 lbs. ft. torque
would make this serious competition for
the 3 series BMW!
