My First Volvo
By judy on
2005 Volvo S40 2.4i Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)
This is my first Volvo and I came to it from a Mazda Miata. I do miss the performance of the Miata, my Volvo seems a tad sluggish at times, but overall a good car. My (older) parents are able to get in and out of the car easily and the three of us can be comfortable enough. I don't have any regrets, but the Miata was more fun.
The center stack is cool and the heated seats are the greatest.
Because of the way the car is designed, backing up is difficult because you can never see the tail end of the vehicle. A little more storage, perhaps a covered change compartment would also be nice.
