I love my S40! It is very stylish and different, but also super reliable and safe. I never thought I'd get hooked on Volvos, but I really am now. I just went out looking at new cars, but was drawn back to Volvo because nothing else compares.
The reach-behind radio/console is both stylish and really user-friendly.
The material on the door is on the flimsy side. I was moving objects in and out of my car and found that it tears easily.
