This is the third S40 in the family, my second. This is the best money can buy at this time due to the 5 year warranty plan and discounts being taking off. After driving a prius for the last three years I really have missed my S40, such a solid well made car. Don't get me wrong, the only thing I'll miss about the prius will be the mileage. You can't put a price on your safety and comfort so I am willing to pay the extra for that. I now feel so much more relaxed when driving, I love my Volvo S40. The safety car crash star rating sold me back into my S40. My partner has had his now for five years and loves his as well, no major unexpected issues. For what I paid you get a lot.
The seats, solid feel. Radio is top notch and sun roof is awesome. Don't let China's finance scare you, they will be putting a lot of money into the company and let Volvo do what they do best and that is built very good cars.For those in North America Volvo cars will still be made in Sweden.
