Just picked up a new, fully loaded
2003 V40 a few days ago after doing
extensive online research of smaller,
upscale wagons. Feature wise (on
paper), the V40 is by far the best
value going vs. other upscale smaller
wagons, such as the BMW 3-series and
Audi A4A Avant. After our first
hundred miles or so driving the car,
it's clear this car doesn't miss a
step vs. the competition. Especially
with the current incentives. It's
almost too good to be true.
The overall quality of all the
materials and switchgear. Without
exageration, this thing is put
together as well as any car in the sub-
$50K range. Feature-rich for its price
(great audio system).
Xenon headlights, true traction
control (has only stability assist).
