Great car, expect to pay for it though
By GT3996 on


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


This car was purchased for my wife in
12/00 with the expectation that we
would have a baby before the end of the
lease. We truly enjoyed the car,
however the addition of our daughter
has changed our feelings towards the
S40. It is simply not large enough for
two adults and one baby. With the baby
seat in the rear-facing position behind
the passengers' seat, my wife has to
move the passengers' seat almost all of
the way forward, which is obviously not
comfortable. Also, we had to replace
the brake pads at 13,000 miles, and
tires at 22,000 miles.

Best Features

The seat warmers are beautiful. This car is equipped with the latch system for the baby seat. The leather is top- grade material. Build quality and ride are exceptional.

Worst Features

Remote trunk opener or interior trunk release should be standard. Cup holders are absolutely horrible. Routine maintenance (tires, brakes) need to be less frequent.
