Competent but not outstanding
By Canuck2003 on
Vehicle2001 Volvo S40 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewBought it 1 year old from the
Volvo dealer and paid 20% less
than if we had bought it new.
Excellent value at that price.
Pretty good acceleration and handling,
although the ride can be a bit stiff on
irregular surfaces. Engine a bit
noisy at low (parking lot) speeds.
Braking is excellent, although I agree
with other reviewers that they wear
down prematurely. Well-designed
interior; e.g. hook on
the left passenger's side (on which to
hang a jacket)is placed so that the
blind spot is not obstructed. Cruise
control is easy to use. Cup
holders though are useless.
Not as well built as the A4 but we paid
much less than the A4.
Best FeaturesNice interior finish and good acceleration. For the price we paid,excellent value.
Worst Featuresremote trunk release steering wheel audio controls better cup holders *lockable* rear seat backs (to protect items in the trunk)
