Good Fun Car
By nate91 on


2002 Volvo S40 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


I really wanted a used BMW or Mercedes primarily because they were great handling rear-wheel drive cars. Hence I was hesitant to get another front-drive Volvo, but this car was in the price range. However, this car has exceeded my expectations.

The turbo makes for great power and great fun. Hit the gas hard and it peels out through first gear. You can easily get to any open spot in traffic even on the highway. Firm suspension makes for good handling but a bit of a bumpy ride. Like others said, it stops on a dime.
The cons. Cheap interior, I hate the cloth seats and door panels are loose. The car idles a bit rough, the steering wheel always shakes at lights.

Best Features

Good acceleration, good handling, good breaks

Worst Features

Interior lacks quality that one would expect from a premium brand.
