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


Review

The overall fit and finish of this car is sexy. I've
had nothing but stares and compliments since
purchasing this vehicle. Many are amazed to find
that it's a Volvo. The commute is smooth and
quiet. I can't say too much about acceleration,
however, because I've been breaking the car in
slowly - but I read that the car reacts quickly and
examines your driving style (aggressive/passive)
and adjusts to accomodate accordingly.


Best Features

I love both the outside and inside. Volvo has gotten it right this time around. I like the 12 speaker sound system, slim console design, auto up/down for all windows, audio controls on the steering wheel, and appoach/homesafe lighting (simply beautiful at night).


Worst Features

Move the audio controls to the lefthand side of the steering wheel, and the cruise buttons to the right. I think people will use the audio buttons more than the cruise buttons, and the audio buttons are more easily accessible on the lefthand side, especially if you're driving a manual.

Review

I've had my car for only a couple weeks,
enjoy it so far. Rides smoothly, handles
nice, good zip, conservative exterior
good looks have made some turn their
heads. Drove over a portion of highway
that had been stripped in order to
repave, fairly considerable buzzing in
the driver's side pillar, though
normally it doesn't. Noticed a very
slight squeek when coming to stop, not
sure if it's brakes. I also considered
the Acura TSX and also came down to
styling, TSX looks too much like an
Accord, the dealer wasn't very friendly,
nor would they respond to my email
queries. The Volvo staff were very
friendly, not pushy and were willing to
negotiate via email.


Best Features

safety features, center console display for stereo, AC, rain sensing wipers, good looks, fairly roomy trunk. I literally saw someone do a walk around while I was in the grocery store the other day


Worst Features

more storage, I need a coin holder!!!! , put clock on center console display, not used to seeing it above the tac

Review

I have owned this car for about a month
and a half and I love it. The
performace is outstanding and easily
outclasses the competition in the price
range. The styling is great, it looks
nothing like the Volvos of old. Also
the gas milage is great given this is a
high performace car. Volvo has
definitely built a winner of a car and
attracted a new audience.


Best Features

2.5L Turbo Charged engine, Premium Audio System, Body Style and gas milage.


Worst Features

MP3 capable CD player. I really wished the horn would sound when the car locks. Other than that the car is great.
