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


I leased this new S40 in March 2001.
Within the first year I had to replace
a rear rotor due to a factory defect.
During the second year with 10,000
miles on the car I needed new rear
rotors and brake pads costing close to
$500. I am currently fighting with
Volvo to reimburse me. During the
second year the shift light blew out,
the front headlight had to be replaced,
the power seat broke and needed a new
switch, the steering colum needed
repairs. The check engine light goes
on and off continously, and the air
conditioning is terrible.
I would never consider another VOLVO
and advise all to stay away!

Best Features

The engine has plenty of power.

Worst Features

Make a car that is not only safe but that holds up. It does no good to have a safe car that you can't drive because it is constantly in the shop for repairs.
