Not a great car

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


I bought the vehicle last year with 62,000 miles on it. Being a Volvo, I thought it was reliable and a great buy. As soon as I pulled out of the lot check engine light went on and brought it back to get the spark plugs fixed. I recently just traded it in and I have had it less than a year! I had to replace brakes, check engine light would not turn off, blown turbo, two ball joints, shocks, and lastly to top it off there was a transmission problem after just four months of having it. Something broke every month and costs were just as much as I bought it for. Got rid of it with 78,000 miles god bless who ever gets one

Best Features

I liked the heated front leather seats. It was a fun little ride. Liked the syle.

Worst Features

I am sorry to hear that you had problems with the car but my family owns the same type of car and the only stuff that was needed to be taken care of was routine stuff... Its probably cause of the previous owners did not take proper care of it
