Bought a Barrents Blue 2.4L 5 cyl automatic S40 with black leather interior, climate package, select package, sunroof, 6 disc CD player, etc. I'm in love with this car! Got a great deal from my local Seattle dealer. The salesman was great too: no pressure, easy to work with, gave me all the necessary info to help me make a solid decision, etc. I highly recommend this car. It rides great. It feels safe and well made. The layout of controls is excellent. A buddy has an Audi A4 (way too many of those in Seattle, BTW) and you are overwhelmed with dials, switches, and readouts. The Volvo S40 has a simple yet elegant controls layout. Kudos Volvo engineers! I highly recommend this car.
Simple, yet elegant style and layout. Safety first. Well built.
Volvo is known for safety. I suggest making "blind spot" sensors on each side of the carwith cueing LEDs integrated into the side mirrors.
