2000 Volvo S40 Turbo 4dr Sedan


Purchased car in 1999, the 1st year
model was offered. The car performed
well the first 1 1/2 yrs of ownership
although we needed 1st of 3 brake jobs
at 8,000 mi. In 2001 the car turned
into a lemon overnight. Head lamps
failed premature. Brake pump failed
which was followed up with recall 3 yrs
later. The front/rear end started to
crack and pop when making turns. As a
result the dealership replaced front
strut towers and found that eng. mounts
were broken. Poping noise in the rear
was caused by missing bushings in rear
suspension. Dealership said bushings
were left out at the factory. The check
eng. light has been on more often than
not. I'm tired of replac

Best Features

Impressed with the handeling, quick pick up and sport style.

Worst Features

Not a true Volvo since it was built in the Netherlands with another automaker. If you own this model, get rid of it! If you are thinking about purchasing the 2000 S40, forget about it.
