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


The paint is cheap, the location and
function of the front and rear
cupholders is bad, the headlamps
burning out after 14,000 miles and the
brakes experiencing frequent wear were
unexpected. I also have been in to the
dealer many more times than you would
plan from a Volvo. Mysterious check
engine lights, tires and rims that need
to be completely replaced after
minor/small impacts with potholes. The
service department is always very nice,
but why is it they always run out of
Volvo loaners right before I get
there? I end up seeing
the "Enterprise" guy in the lobby and
enjoy the hint of smoke-
ridden Chevy Malibu for the day.

Best Features

The radio is good

Worst Features

eliminate the S40 and give those of us looking for the "entry-level" Volvo experience a better lease or purchase deal on the S60 or S80.
