2000 Volvo V40 Wagon 4dr Wagon


Review

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.

Review

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.


Best Features

Seats, comfort, handling, gas mileage, exterior look


Worst Features

Although it is impressive a Volvo has a cup holder, it is placed bad and breaks easy. Interior lights and back brakes.

Review

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.


Best Features

Acceleration, responsiveness, front seats, stock sound system, and the feeling of roominess in the car.

Review

I have had nothing but major headaches with this vehicle ever since the 5 yr/50,000 mi. warranty expired. From O2 sensor problems, faulty engine mounts,transmission replacement at 80,000 mi., several brake pad kits, fuel regulator, battery, constant alignments, gaskets/seals,timing belt. The cupholder broke in first 3 months,as did armrest, front wipers, moonroof and passenger side mirror- I have had to spend more money on this car than I ever did on my Toyota Camry in 15 years of life. Either I got a lemon, or this is the worst car ever designed. Just skip Volvo altogether- It's expensive and not what it used to be


Best Features

None


Worst Features

ALL- Just overhaul the model and get the kinks out

Review

Used for highway driving primarily, this vehicle has not performed well, interior is not forgiving, & bulbs go out frequently. VERY expensive to maintain - and other owners of this model seem to agree.


Best Features

Heated Seats and warning lights.


Worst Features

skip this model.
