Solid, reliable, sporty and can fit everything either in it or on it.
I purchased this car after a friend wrapped his Volvo around a telephone pole and walked away w/only a scratch or two.
I was surprised to find out how nimble this little wagon is.
Must get V rated tires, but it is worth it.
Kept up w/maintenance schedule, and has run like a charm for 195,000 miles.
Showing no signs of quitting soon.
Highly recommend this car.

I love this wagon and sadly now looking at having to replace it soon. I drive a lot, have over 208,000 miles, and have had three to four minor crashes in this car. However, I have never been injured and walked away fine. Three times I have been rear ended and the next day, no neck pain or injury, I felt nothing. The first time I found out the frame was bent from the impact! This has been a great car for driving and on gas mileage, with a few issues, but overall I love it and it has served me well.

In school I used to work part-time in a Volvo dealership and saw so many cars come in for scheduled maintenance still going strong with 200,000+ miles, so I decided to buy one myself. The V40 I bought was an excellent choice. It looks sharp and is a joy to drive. It's much faster than most would imagine with the DOHC and is very responsive. It's refined looking but has enough space in the back for most errands. I moved to CA from the East Coast with everything I owned piled high in the back after folding down the seats. No problems at all. As with all Volvos, it's better to get the V40 serviced at a dealership. Do this and you're sure to have a reliable, handsome car for years.
