2004 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

I don't understand why Volvo replaced this pure winner in 2005. We went shopping for a Mini or something similar to offset the gas guzzling mileage of our SUVs and found this V40 wagon small enough, wonderfully fuel efficient (occasionally averaging 30 mpgs for a tankful), with quality fit and finish and ever so much more practical than compact sedans. It is responsive in every way, has been great in the snow, and is fun to drive. It is the perfect car for an empty nest couple who still need to move things from place to place and are still young enough to want a great driving drive vehicle.

Best Features

styling, handling, nifty cargo storage extras (belts, nets), gas mileage, quality cabin, intuitive controls

Worst Features

A simpler radio, ground clearance in front too low, bigger rear view mirror would be a plus
