I was wrong.

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


So here I looked at all these reviews before buying the car, I thought "Man I wonder if these people are right.." But got the car anyway.

It's a day later, and already I have to replace all fluids, flush everything, buy a new water pump, and replace the timing belt.
The car has been perfectly kept before me, and only has 90,000 miles on it. Yet, I still find myself burning a hole in my pocket.
Do Not Get This Car - Or you'll make the same mistake I did.

Best Features

The look of the car is flawless.

Worst Features

Volvo needs to make their parts last longer. Especially for the prices we have to pay to fix everything.

This sounds like typical maintenance . . . right down to the timing belt.
