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

Review

I bought a demo with 6000 miles. Just after the warranty ran out I had to replace the oil filter assembly. Then I had to replace the sensor that controls the valve timing. Total cost: over $1000. Software is buggy after many "upgrades" under warranty. Clock resets itself. Stereo will refuse to play, but will come back on its own the next day. Bad idea to mix the entertaiment system with the car computer. No way to add aftermarket gear - such as an iPod (use FM they say - doesn't really work well at all). Advice? Buy a Honda.

Favorite Features

Style not too bad. Fuel economy is decent. Peppy engine.

Suggested Improvements

Separate the entertainment system from the car computer! Make it aftermarket friendly. Build a more reliable engine!
