Maintenance Headache
By JPP on


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


I leased this car for my wife. Was
looking for something that wouldn't be
a headache. Since we've had it the
interior lights, headlights and fuses
constantly blow out on a rotating
schedule. My wife drives like a
grandma so we didn't have to replace
the brakes until 20k. The tires are
worn out now at 24k. We had it in the
shop three times to get the horn to
work correctly. And the two right
rims are bent without any major
bumps. I thought we had a lemon until
I read all these other reviews. Can't
wait for the lease to be over...

Best Features

Fun to drive when it's working.
