This is a 2000. The interior is
cramped. Poor placement of electrical
control in the center pedestal as
are hand brake and flip-flopping
armrest.The locations of coin and cup
holder are poorly located. Some
of these defects were corrected in the
2001. Only the epress window control is
located in the drivers door armrest and
no window control is provided in the
passenger's armrest. Michelin tires
improve driving and durability.
The V40 is a great drive, both city and
highway. The addition of turbo drive
gives an unexpected zip. The flat wagon
section is more than adequate.
