Low Reliability, High Maintenance!
By rgmurphy on
Vehicle
2004 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
Review
Second set of brakes being replaced after only 89000 KMS (55000 miles). Rear brake pads and discs failed after 24000 miles, replacement of pads and discs= brake job. Now front brakes, pads and discs have failed with rear breaks @ 40%. Typical service is no maintenance but diagonistics with simple oil change costing minimum of $200 and full service around $400. Break jobs are $1000 (CDN) Brakes are not warranteed items and no wonder why. New brake pads and disc on back order in Ottawa and require special delivery and no wonder why. Volvo for life sentence or 15000 miles which ever is less. Never again Volvo. Switching to Toyota, Mazda, Honda, Nissan.
Favorite Features
Nice to drive but..... very high maintenance costs, poor warrantee, difficult to get service dates (1 month in Ottawa).
Suggested Improvements
New V50 fixes issues with offer of standard transmission. Problem is related to substandard brakes for North American driving conditions and Automatic transmission.
