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


Review

I've had my S40 for less than a week
and I love it! It handles like a dream
and the interior is very luxurious! I
love the leather and the wood inlay.
The floating console is really cool
too! Mine is mistral green metalic and
I love that too. At first I doubted
getting the color because my last few
cars were green, but this color is
beautiful and it looks great in the
sun. The sports package is great. I
drove both the 2.4i and the T5 and the
acceleration was negligable to me, so I
didn't feel it was worth the extra
money to get the T5. This car is
definately worth every penny. The
competition better watch out for this
car!


Best Features

Leather interior, acceleration, safety, EVERYTHING!


Worst Features

Better gas mileage...thats stretching, I just really like this car.

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


Review

I didn't get the turbo because I didn't
need the extra speed. So far I love the
new body style and I feel very safe in
it. It's a safe car which looks classy
yet doesn't look like an older person's
car. The service at Warren Henry in
Miami was amazing and they beat out the
best price any where else. It's a car
that I can invision placing my future
kids in and yet not make me feel like I
had to sacrifice a youthful car.


Best Features

Dashboard, climate and premium package, wood package, rear spoiler, safety features.I thought it was a perfect car for a single professional woman in her 30's that's tired of sports cars and is ready for the next chapt in her life. It was designed by a woman so a lot of features-dash i


Worst Features

Perhaps a cover for the cup holders and a few more features added that the s60 has. Perhaps a different color background on the dash-it's green. It would be nice if it drove a little smoother and it was hard to buy individual features without having to buy a package which was expensiv

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


Review

Just bought the car yesterday for
about 1100 under invoice. We had a
sudden need for another car and wanted
something economical that still had a
little panache. Looked at Hondas,
Toyotas, et cetera. We've had a couple
of BMWs including a competing 3
series. I don't really expect the
same level of performance, comfort, or
resale but the Volvo was about $10K
less and I just think it has cool -
unique (perhaps a little quirky)
styling. I am expecting to like it
very much and give it to my 13 year
old daughter in a few years.

The floating center console is a very unique feature and it is easy to use. jr

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


Review

I just got my new T5 two weeks ago,
and I have to say that this is one
serious automobile. The acceleration
numbers that you read in the magazines
(0-60 in 6.5 secs) just do not do this
car justice, and cannot covey
the feeling of doing 35mph, putting
your right foot on the floor, and
watching 70 come up before you can
even take a breath. The ride and
steering with the sport suspension
feels stable even at ridiculous speeds
through twisting turns. The seats are
comfortable and supportive, and the
interior is stylish, and inviting.
This is the perfect car for those of
us that do not want to sacrifice
performance, but need to haul
around the rug rats.


Best Features

Looks! Every time that I walk up to the front of this car and see the bulky fenders, wrap headlights, and the 17" snow flake rims, I feel that everything is right in my world.


Worst Features

Get rid of the "always on" headlights!

Review

After owning a 1986 Volvo 740 for 14
years, I drove a Ford Taurus for
another 7. There is nothing like
getting back into a Volvo, especially
the S40.5. It may be smaller than a
typical Volvo, but it is an awesome
piece of machinery.
