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


Review

Just purchased the T5 for my wife who
initially wanted the 2.4i, however
after test driving the T5, took me no
effort to sell her on it. Dollar for
dollar, far superior than BMW 3 series,
and AUDI A4. Classy and sporty design
inside and out. So far, no complaints
just reassurance that we made the right
decision. Car gets better everyday.


Best Features

Interior design, center stack. Solid feel to car, no squeeks or rattles, and quiet. The body design is not gender oriented, ie; doesn't look like a girl's car.


Worst Features

Many Volvo advertisements show the S40 having the body kit. However, local retail price for this option is high $1995. Should be $1000.

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


Review

I purchased my S40 T5 about a month ago
and I've loved every mile so far. It's
fast, responsive, comfortable, and
feels very solid and safe. A great
value for the price. I find myself
using any excuse to go drive it. I
think the S40 will make me a Volvo
driver for life!


Best Features

Design, comfy seats, super quick T5 engine, and the sweet sound system.


Worst Features

The sunroof interior cover somtimes rattles when open. The dealer promptly fixed and haven't had a problem since.

Review

The T5 is fast and handles great. It sticks to
the road and is responsive. Alpine White
and the fresh design is a head-turner. You
get a lot more car for your money compared
to Audi and BMW's low end models. I have
had this car for a month and am one of three
who own one in San Diego. Get the Sport
Package!


Best Features

Design, color, sport suspension, dual exhaust, 17" rims and tires, T-Tec interior, digital ac/heat, trip monitor, stereo, large sunroof, electronic keys, gear tronic manual transmission, and, acceleration


Worst Features

Clicking noise on the A Frame on the drivers side which is annoying, trunk is deep but not wide, just enough room to fit my golf clubs, blind spots over right and left shoulders, low end of the gas milage range 22 mph, could be better, that is it!

Review

Fun to drive, easy to use controls,
comfort, luxury, performance, it has
it all. Rockin stereo has changer in
dash, all changers should be in dash.
Trunk, under seat, and glove box
mounted changers are antiquated. I
have had cars that claimed to be
sports cars that cost twice as much
and did not perform as well as this
car, nor were they put together as
well. These new volvos are something
to get excited about. Everyone should
look at these before they buy anything
else.


Best Features

six disc in dash changer, windows that roll down with remote


Worst Features

wish they had blue paint, hear that it will be available next year though

2004 Volvo S40 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

2nd time for S-40. Love the comfort and
driveability. Great ride on the highway
and fuel economy is there. Rims get
dirty very quickly and detracts from
appearance. Would buy another.


Best Features

Comfortable leather seats. Would like memory on seats as option.


Worst Features

Liked preset buttons for radio on the 2002 better than turning knob on 2004
