2000 Volvo S40 Turbo 4dr Sedan


I bought a Volve for safety and reliability. Safety I got, reliability was poor. Changed out both front strut assy's at 60K miles, turbocharger leaked costing over $800 to repair before 80K miles. It is parked in my garage now because there is a front suspension problem. I am going to get rid of it and never buy a Volvo again. The check engine light comes on more often than not without a defineable cause. Shift handle now fails to lock in park position.

Best Features

Steering and handling.

Worst Features

Gas mileage is poor for a small sedan. Turbo charger should not have failed at under 80K miles and struts typically last longer than 60K miles on such a small car.
