Wouldn't ever buy a Volvo again.
By KWall on


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


I've had my Volvo for almost 5 years now (purchased it when it was 2 yrs. old). Have had many problems with the check engine light coming on. Had to replace an oxygen sensor a total of 8 times! Recently the electric components of the headlight broke, and it cost $1550 to repair! Volvo parts are extremely expensive, and the electric components of the car are too sensitive. The upkeep of this car is so expensive that I will never buy a Volvo again.

Best Features

Drives well, still looks good even though it's 7 years old

Worst Features

Electric components are too sensitive. Cup holders poorly placed/not very functional. Not a good car for tall people to drive.
