Wow, what a nice car. I had never
owned a Volvo and was always turned
off by their square body styling, that
was until I saw the new 2005 S40.
Volvo has definitely done a great job
improving their body styles. I was
originally interested in the BMW 325i.
I figured I would at least give the
competitors a try, so I test drove the
Audi A4, Mercedes C230, and Acura TSX.
I came across the S40 while doing some
research on Edmunds. The ratings were
good and the price looked even better.
I went for a test drive and I was
sold. In my opinion, the S40 T5 blew
the others out of the water. I have
been driving the car in the city and
getting an impressive 27 mpg. I hope
this continues after the break in.
