Only 7.7 years not for life
By AJFH on


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


Purchased this car after seeing it in France in the summer of 2000. We were first impressed by its ride, peppy motor and looks. We thought the car would last well beyond a estimated 10 years..oops big mistake. It is no better than a Chevrolet when it comes to reliability. Numerous visits to the shop for all kinds of repairs. Luckily we bought the 100000 mile warranty. Since it ended in August 2007 over $3000 in repairs have been done and its still doesn't run well. The engine light is continually on. It's just become a headache.

Best Features

Peppy, fun to drive.

Worst Features

Volvo did the right thing. They dropped the 4cyl turbo.
