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


i purchased this car in january, 2000,
because my wife "had to have it". back
brakes went out after 15k mi and ruined
rotor. a/c stops working w/continuous
use (2 hours driving). headlight go
out every 10k mi. sunvisors are stuck
in down position. check engine light
is on contiously-no one knows why.
maintenance is expensive even for
european car. the suspension rattles
until the car has warmed-up (?!?).
headlight socket broke when light
replaced (3rd time)-dealer says it's my
problem since the warranty is out.

Best Features

none-unless someone takes this piece off my hands.

Worst Features

buy a '78 pinto.
