2000 Volvo S40 Sedan Turbo 4dr Sedan


Review

I love this car! I have personally put
over 100K miles on this car in heavy
traffic and on road trips and I have
never regretted the purchase once. My
service has been excellent, my
reliability good and the car is without
question a well performing small car.
I have to say I understand the weiners,
they just did not understand the car
they purchased. There was a defect
with the headlights which was
completely fixed under warranty. The
brake pads do wear quickly. Volvos
have great brakes, they stop on a dime.
Great brakes wear quickly, that's the
trade-off. I would never trade my
safety and breaking for saving a $100
in brake pads.


Best Features

It is safe and fun to drive, what else do you need?


Worst Features

The cup holders in the center console are useless except to hold my garage door opener and the back seat is a little short on the leg room.

Review

I love my S40 and have never had a
serious problem with it. Why are people
complaining about the size of the car?
If you want it to be bigger, get an
S60 or 80! Yes, the cupholder position
sucks but it has all been changed.
This was the first year that the car
was released in the US, and is bound
to have some design flaws, but they
have all been fixed in the newer
models. Maybe if people were less
abusive with their car, then they
would not have problems. Also, the
price of maintenance is high because
ITS A EUROPEAN AUTOMOBILE!!!! What do
you expect. If you can't afford
maintenance, buy an american car.


Best Features

Fun to drive, comfortable, reliable, safe. The best car I've ever owned.


Worst Features

Cupholder of course but this has been fixed in later models.

Review

I bought this car the first month that it
became available in the US. It has been a
reliable, quality car during this time. The
headlights did burn out rather soon (but only
require a new bulb that dealership gives
away). I got the winter/leather package and
this has made all the difference. Heated
seats and traction control make it a great
winter car, turbo and nice wheels/tires make
it a great driving car too. Priced against the
Audi A4 and BMW 3 series, this was a much
better deal.


Best Features

Compact, zippy urban car. Affordably luxurious.


Worst Features

Make front hood less vulnerable to crashes. Someone backed into my hood and did $ 4000.00 worth of damage.

Review

I don't know where all these whiners
come from,i have had no issues with my
Volvo since day one.It's top of the
line ASR with luxury premium winter
package.People....do not abuse your
cars and it will last without
problems.Change oil,do not accelerate
heavy on the first 20000 miles.Let it
breake-in.Do not assume if it is import
luxury you can abuse.Like i have said i
had no issues whatsoever.Great handling
on the snow with heated seats and
DSA.you don't pay a BMW price either
and it's front wheel drive


Best Features

DSA,heated seats,handling


Worst Features

Cupholder in the stupid position.What else do you expect from american designers?
