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


Bought my 2001 Volvo S40 and after 3 years, I had the enjoyment of trading it in for a Mercury Mountaineer SUV! I'm a big guy: 6 feet 200 and I was sick and tired of receiving a head concussion every time I stooped down to get in this vehicle. A/C never worked right and not cold enough despite multiple trips to Volvo dealer. CD player constantly skips even with entire new factory Volvo unit. Intrument panel/radio/cup holder ENTIRELY NON-USER FRIENDLY and confusing! Only good thing was turbo engine was quite peppy and good gas mileage. Because this car was so small and multitude of creature "dis- comforts" that it had, I had the pleasure of dumping it for a nice big SUV. Whew..what a relief!!

Best Features

Peppy little turbo engine.Good gas mileage. Sheer enjoyment of finally unloading it.

Worst Features

Total re-design both inside and out. Doesn't matter now, because I'll never buy another one. I like SUV's & trucks.
