2009 Volvo S40 Sedan T5 R-Design 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

Do not buy! I bought a Volvo when my daughter was born in 2009 selling my super reliant 1.7 Puma. The engine failed after just over 2 years. As I had had my 2nd year service late (less than 1000 miles) Volvo said the warranty was void. The customer care team refused to speak to me. 7 days after spending 6,000 on a new engine the new engine fails in the same way as the previous one. The car has been towed back to the garage. Having researched the engine, it is rubbish

2009 Volvo S40 Sedan 2.4i 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5A)


Review

This is my first Volvo after owning a V6 Honda Accord. I find the non-turbo very underpowered and an overall disappointment. Passing vehicles almost always requires the use of the auto-stick. Seats become uncomfortable after long drives and climate control is very difficult to regulate. I would recommend that you thoroughly investigate performance prior to purchasing


Best Features

styling, options available in base model, warranty


Worst Features

improve climate control, relocate inaccessible lumbar adjustment wheel, rethink engine/transmission combination

2009 Volvo S40 Sedan 2.4i 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5A)


Review

This is our third Volvo. The other two were station wagons (over 15 years ago). Purchased this for my 17 year old daughter as her first car. I am impressed because it is sporty enough for her and it is still a solid little Volvo. I just wish I could drive it sometime.


Best Features

design, leather seats (very comfortable), nice sound system, blue tooth etc.


Worst Features

I like the car the way it is.

Review

This the first Volvo I bought, I've wanted one since I was 19 yrs old,mainly because of the safety features and durability. I get about 27/29 MPG which was about the same as my Honda Accord, which was only a 4 cyl engine. The seats are very comfortable,and the standard equip is great. I wanted a sports car, but after driving the S40 it proved to have the tight suspension that I wanted,but the comfort I needed and it had back seat in case we needed it. My husband was a Ford man and after he drove my car home, he wanted one, so 5 days later we went back and bought another one. We are very pleased so far.


Best Features

seats, blue tooth,ipod connection,sporty design


Worst Features

A larger trunk
