never buy this car

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


Since we leased this car,
it has been in the shop 47 DAYS! The
check engine light keeps going on and
off, there are many rattles in the
headliner, and when the dealer tried
to fix this, they caused a leak to
start in the roof. The car even came
with a defect, a bad turbo hose that
caused the car to stall randomly. The
front brakes and rotors needed
replacement after 21000 miles, the
rear brake pads much earlier than
that. The sunroof leaked, the antenna
broke, and the dealer never had the
parts on hand to fix the car.

Best Features

Worst Features

Yeah, make a safe AND reliable car volvo. Im buying a honda!
