2004 Volvo S40 Sedan 2.4i 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased the new 2004.5 Volvo S40
over the Memorial Day weekend. I must
say-- I LOVE THIS CAR! The new design
is much sportier than the old S40. My
friends couldn't believe that this was
a Volvo! It handles well, and the
interior is so sleek! If you're gonna
get this car-- definitely opt for the
Sport Package w/ leather interior and
moonroof.
fuel economy is about 24 city / 30 hwy


Best Features

sleek and slim control panel. safety airbags everywhere! the whole design of the car makes people turn their heads!


Worst Features

road noise on less than smooth roads. you can't drive with the driver's side window down without getting a headache.

2004 Volvo S40 Sedan T5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I have recently purchased my 2004.5
Volvo T5 and it was the best choice I
could have made. This car amazes me
everyday I insert the nifty key fob and
start that 2.5L turbo engine. I would
and have recommended this car to many
other people and ones that have had the
chance to drive mine have said they
would DEFINATELY consider buying a
volvo for their next car.


Best Features

Xenon headlights!! Low Price!! Great handling! Comfortable supportive seats. Even though it is the smallest Volvo it still has plenty of rear leg room and actually currently has more trunk space than the S80. ALL WINDOWS ARE ONE TOUCH UP AND DOWN!!! Key fob rolls all windows down.


Worst Features

Cant wait till the car is offered in All Wheel Drive. Cup holders are a little too large for most drinks. Sensors need to be added on windows so key fob can roll windows back up.

2004 Volvo S40 Sedan 2.4i 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5A)


Review

The best bang for the buck. After
looking at the 2004 A4 and the C230,
this was the best car to drive. Not
only does it have a great price, but
the safety features and basic
accessories make this car a 'must' to
at least test drive.


Best Features

The center console design and the premium audio. Rigid chassis design and road handling.


Worst Features

The CD player can shut down for 1-2 minutes if you turn your car off and turn it back on quickly...however, this is probably just a minor glitch in my car.

Review

I have had this vehicle for a few
months. I have driven a 3 series BMW in
the past and it is very comprible to
both the look/sleekness and the ride.
The appointments on the interior are
beautiful...sleek new dash,
greatleather seating,overall controls.
The interior is so well made and not
cheesy at all. What a hot car


Best Features

favorite features are: the sleek center console, sleek curvature of the seats, overall body styling


Worst Features

suggested improvments: a way to change out or cover the cup holders..maybe if they had a sleek cover or u could easily change thme out..in my opinion they are nothing but dust/dirt collectors. a little more storage spca on the doors would be nice, articulating head rest.

Review

Fast sleek and sexy. She handles and
keeps up with the rest of them. An
investment worth taking. Would never
buy another car brand again.
