Nice But Expensive

2008 Volvo S40 T5 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

This car has been really good up till lately. I purchased this vehicle brand new with only 2 miles on it; now I am at 45,380 miles. Within the last month... Navigation quit working - dealer had to order a whole new head unit for it... Strange & Annoying rattle in the passenger side door - ended up being loose rivets that hold the window in the door. They also did some software update as well. This was all covered under warranty. This car never seems to hold an alignment. Just home today from having the 3rd alignment since I got this car new. This is the first vehicle I have ever had to do a alignment on. Hopefully the third time is a charm.

Best Features

Fun to drive, acceptable power with the T5, interior design.

Worst Features

Bigger trunk would be nice. On the AWD trunk space is very limited. Cheaper maintenance would be a bonus; major service intervals can run as high as $600. Less problems - at 45K I am starting to see way too many ridiculous issues.
