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

Review

Within the first year of owning this car it had to be flatbed towed due to a faulty steering column. The doors and locks would not respond to either the key or the controls inside the car. Volvo looked at it 3 times before they could determine the problem.I had to drive there while the problem was happening to prove I wasn't crazy. I have 60k miles and I have to spend $1600 on a new clutch and clutch slave cylindar. the car is 4 yrs old and just over the warranty. Volvo will not take any ownership of the costs. A clutch should not break in 4 years. I am a very experienced standard transmission driver and it was not due to my handling. This car is a money pit! stay away at all costs.

Favorite Features

Body style is sporty.

Suggested Improvements

Aluminum console dents way too easy. if you drop your keys on it, you will dent it. The transmission is awful and needs to be factory recalled.
