After researching and test driving cars for 4 months, I fell in love with the S40. It drives like a dream, accelerates well,is fun to shift, has a moon roof and premium sound system. Couldn't be happier-- when it's not in the shop. I've owned the car less than 9 weeks and it's been in the shop for 24 days. It has less than 18K mi. The climate control sensor blew hot air and was serviced 2x before replacement was backordered; the window regulators on both front windows were replaced; window rail on driver's side replaced; the passenger seat belt was replaced (air bag light came on). I'm scheduled to pick it up tomorrow but after 3 wks in a loaner, I'm not sure I'll remember how to drive it
Love the handling, styling, sound system (except radio reception is poor). Love the safety features, especially on the road with all those SUVs.
I've lost confidence in this car. Reliability seems to be zero. Service dept is nice but not in a hurry to get it right and management is patronizing when asked about the reliability. The key is too big. Needs a clock on the radio.
