2006 Volvo S40 T5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

Never gave Volvo a thought until I test drove this car and was I impressed. I test drove the BVW 3series, Audi, Honda, Acura and was suprised to find that this car was actually fun, quick and handling was comparable to its competitors. Did I mention fun...Hold on when the turbo kicks in...got to remember to lay off the accelerator at times! It maneuvers/responds superbly in and out of tight city traffic or interstate traffic. The one hour drive is very comfortable especially after a 13hr work day. Besides, I couldn't have gotten a fully loaded vehicle w/ so many options I didn't think were necessary but now can't do without for less than 30K....definitely not the other mentioned vehicles

Best Features

great ext/interior looks, sporty..love passion red. Optional 5speed 'geatronic' simulating a manual is a great option for the die-hard manual tranny lover w/o inconvenience of clutch. Seating comfy & not the feel of sittig a few inches from the steering 4 those of us who are vertically challanged.

Worst Features

larger/longer storage compartment to store CDs or rest arm while driving. Otherwise, no complaint or negatives thus far.
