Why Europeans tend to get it right
By Adam Lausch on


2003 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


I must say that this is truly a unique car. I've rated it as unbiased as tough as I can. I simply love to drive it, and I've owned some pretty nice vehicles. I think one of its major downfalls is that Volvo didn't offer a manual transmission, that would be a blast. I love the V50s, but we were able to find a very nice V40 with low miles for $6K. I couldn't pass it up. So far I've have the check engine light come on once, and I think the ignition timing may have been off a bit. So I changed out a set of new high-performance plugs, and it's running superbly. Good performance, not great. It's so comfortable as well. Why buy a SUV for a small family when there are fun and economic wagons like this

Best Features

1.9 Turbo torque, very fun to drive because it weighs just under 3000 lbs.

Worst Features

It's peppy but a bit more HP couldn't have hurt. Where's the manual trans?
