2005 Volvo S40 2.4i Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)

Review

I purchased the 2.4i with the sport package in south Florida and found it loads of fun to drive. Handles very well in the curves and the 2.4 litre engine is peppy enough for everyday traffic. I since moved to upstate NY and it does great on the country roads, but snows are a MUST as the traction control constantly slips in winter. I now have 90k miles on it and have had a couple of major problems, at 55k miles the radiator blew. Thank goodness for the extended warranty, or could have been $1500! Interior design is stylish, but cheep materials. Trim clips continually break (in trunk too) and stupid expensive to replace.

Favorite Features

Center console and multiple net pouches around seating.

Suggested Improvements

Could use a way to hook up ipod and better CD player. This one frequently jams. More trunk room needed for long items, especially when folding down the seats. The area behind the seats gets in the way of anything larger than a suitcase.
