Worst car I've ever owned
By sgtcheesenols on
2005 Volvo S40 2.4i Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)
I have owned a Mitsubishi and 2 Hyundais in my lifetime, and taken all of them beyond 100K miles. They all had minimal issues, and 2 of them are still running with their new owners. At 50K miles, this Volvo began having a myriad of issues. I spent over $6K fixing it, and finally gave up. I had to replace the Dashboard A/C vents, the A/C compressor, the ceiling carpet, the brakes, both engine mounts, among other things. I finally gave up! The quality and reliability of this vehicle is horrible enough to make me never want to buy a Volvo again. Buyer beware if you plan
Has a sporty feel, fast acceleration, and feels like a sports car. I like the safety features with the vehicle, and the bucket style seats.
I would recommend burning all the S40s in the world so no one else has to endure what I did.
