Good Car - Thought Not for the New Price

2009 Volvo S40 2.4i 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5A)
Review
My main beefs with the car is that the base engine is fairly weak for how heavy the car is. Throw that thing in a Honda Civic & it performs quite well. But you buy a Volvo for the solid build & safety ratings & it could afford a slightly more powerful base engine [~ 190hp?]... it shouldn't affect the fuel efficiency that much. The T5 isn't that much worse on the MPG's. Otherwise, I agree with most of the reviews & the main reason I bought this car is because I bought a loaner vehicle from a dealership for a third off the MSRP. And that's a 2009 with 10k miles. Volvos depreciate so much & that makes it worth it. That pretty much sold me. And my wife wanted it. Maybe that was the reason.
Favorite Features
1. Exterior - it's a good looking car. 2. Seats - yes they're comfy. 3. Solid - still feels like a Volvo. 4. Simple Styling 5. Depreciation [if you're a buyer!]
Suggested Improvements
1. Fuel Efficiency 2. Slightly Larger Engine
