Not Bad/Not Great
By Lincoln Steffens on
2003 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
I wanted the Passat Wagon, my wife did
not. We chose this primarily because
of the Volvo name and safety features.
The price as also competitive. We live
in the city so we V70 would have been
too big. This car is somewhat too
small, particularly in cargo area and
backseat when compared to its
competitors. He drives and handles
well and is pretty zippy on the
freeway. Gas mileage for city driving
is surprisingly poor for a 4 cyl. car
(15 mpg). Requires premium gas too!
