Is This a Volvo?
By CG's binky on


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


I've had this car 3 months.I have taken
2 long trips,commute and fun trips.On
short drives it handles and has
great pick-up.On long drives it has
been extremely comfortable and easy to
drive.In a pinch,it moved with stabil-
ity and traction.I've never owned a
Volvo,but I am absolutely sure my money
was well spent.It has been fun, good-
looking, comfortable and best of all,
safe. It has enough verve to equal the
responsiveness of a manual trans.As a
friend mentioned -"look at all the old
Volvo's you see on the road".Can't say
I want to own an old Volvo,but it's
nice to know it would likely last as
long as I would want.I could not be
happier with this car!

Best Features

handling, and turbo. It has a very sporty feel-not at all what I expected!

Worst Features

I would have liked to try a manual trans-not available. I really like the aluminum or brushed nickel interiors in other cars- maybe in the future? Updated dials and dash appearance could do a lot for this car.
