S40 - The Brake Eater
By Brendan Kelly on


2000 Volvo S40 Turbo 4dr Sedan


I write this on the eve of my
45,000 "tune up." Based on past
experience, this is when they tell me
that I need to replace all of my brakes
and rotors, even though these were just
replaced at 39,500.

I'm so fed up with this car. The
brakes, which I've replaced 3 times,
cost about $500 each time. Also, a
new warning light greets me about once
a month.

Those of you happy with your car are in
for a rude awakening when you realize
how much this piece of junk has
depreciated in a short period of time.
Check out Consumer Reports' "used cars
to avoid list."

Best Features

Hmmmm...the heated seats.

If you own one, sell it ASAP.
