2000 Volvo S40 Turbo 4dr Sedan


This car has an excellent response when
speed and acceleration is needed. I
have put this car at 137 MPH on
Alligator Alley and it could have still
kept going a tad more had I not cought
up with traffic. Getting to 130 MPH is
a breeze. Need a stretch to get to the
137 I put it to. Acceleration is very
good. I have left more than 1 BMW 325
asking for a second chance. Response
from mid speeds is also superb. The
interior is suprisingly comfortable. It
looks smaller outside but feels large
inside, even in the backseets.It is
more roomy than the A4 by far. The
trunk is very generous as well. The car
has had no problems, just regular
service and it has 56,000 miles. Best
car in its league.

Best Features

Power, handling, Fun to drive and the luxury of any Mercedes in its class.

Worst Features

Would like power window buttons not only at the center for front driver but also on the door armrest. GPS would be nice. 16" wheels instead of the standadard 15" would improve handling on tight corners for those who really put the cars to the test regularly.
