S40T5 - great when it's not in the shop
By jessenola on
Vehicle
2005 Volvo S40 T5 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
Review
I bought the S40T5 after my TSX was totaled. It's been in the shop 4 times: failed oxygen sensor, failed engine computer (requiring flatbed towing and a week-long wait for the part), check engine lights, failed fuel pump sensor, and a loose part in drivers door. Still the stereo stops working at random requiring a restart, the auto transmission shifts are so jerky in manumatic mode that I have to leave it in D, and there are rattles that the dealer refuses to acknowledge. At every service stop the local dealer service is pathetic. It is seriously fun to drive when it works, but the service is ridiculous.
Favorite Features
Turbo power, good gas mileage, amazing brakes, interior and exterior style, T- tec seats w/ white striping (way cooler than leather)
Suggested Improvements
Drivers seat should tilt front and back, electrochromic mirror and an OnStar type system should be standard, BETTER SERVICE!
