Guess I'm luckier than I thought

2001 Volvo S40 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


I haven't been extremely thrilled with
my first Volvo, but after reading
these reviews, I guess I'm doing
better than I thought. The clear coat
on my car is trashed--every time a
bird poops on it, there's a permanent
spot, and I have found that the
interior fabric stains even if it's
just a water spot. The plastic molding
along the bottom of the car is
constantly loose. The car has been
reliable for me and I enjoy driving
it, but with the paint quality, I just
can't see this car looking good for
the long haul.

Best Features

Heated seats, comfortable seats, smooth ride.

Worst Features

Different cupholder design, different headlight design (so people can replace their own headlights), MUCH better paint, stain resistant interior fabric, nicer service
