2nd Volvo S40

Vehicle2010 Volvo S40 2.4i 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)
ReviewThe 1.9% fin, maint covered for 5yrs/60K miles pursuaded me to buy 2nd S40 (prior being '06). Ownership experience has exceeded every reasonable expectation. With few exceptions (AC compressor), maint expense has been more than reasonable, considerably less than had I settled on another luxury make (considered BMW, Lexus). Seating is very comfortable, interior asthetically clean and simple, dash/instrumentation very intuitive. Subtle changes from my prior S40 is improved center console, USB/AUX/iPOD interface, Bluetooth, Satelite/HD radio, Auto- Climate control, BLIS. performance/handling is tight and responsive, though not as that as the '06 (which had sport-tuned suspension)
Best FeaturesPower moonroof, T-Tec seating/upholstery, waterfall console, feel/handling of the drive, Geartronic transmission
Worst FeaturesWhile the Geartronic transmission is sweet, I do miss manual at times (as was my '06). Had the combination of the Turbo engine AND manual transmission been available (like it is for the C30), I may have considered it
