Culturally confused but very nice
By Larry Pope on


2003 Volvo S40 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


I have never owned a Ford product. I
have never owned a Volvo. I've never
owned a Mitsubishi product. I've never
owned a car built in Holland. One
purchase covered all of those voids.
That said, the car is well built, and
gutsy. It's my wife's driver and she
loves it. My only complaint with the
car is that the 4 cylinder is a little
noisy. But I've driven few 4 cylinders
that didn't sound like sewing machines.

Best Features

Overall exterior design. I used to hate Volvos. Called them "Swedish Tractors". Ugly ugly ugly. The new generations of car show some style and "American" influence. Whether it's Ford's ownership or they simply had to come into the 21st century, they've done a nice job with the styling.

Worst Features

The 4 bolt wheels look a little cheap. The castings are good and the styling is fine, make them 5 bolt. Overall, no major complaints or concerns.
