What a ride!
By dargorilla on
2004 Volvo S40 T5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
I just got my new T5 two weeks ago,
and I have to say that this is one
serious automobile. The acceleration
numbers that you read in the magazines
(0-60 in 6.5 secs) just do not do this
car justice, and cannot covey
the feeling of doing 35mph, putting
your right foot on the floor, and
watching 70 come up before you can
even take a breath. The ride and
steering with the sport suspension
feels stable even at ridiculous speeds
through twisting turns. The seats are
comfortable and supportive, and the
interior is stylish, and inviting.
This is the perfect car for those of
us that do not want to sacrifice
performance, but need to haul
around the rug rats.
Looks! Every time that I walk up to
the front of this car and see the
bulky fenders, wrap headlights, and
the 17" snow flake rims, I feel that
everything is right in my world.
