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


We are finishing up our 3-year lease on this car and have loved driving it. We have all options including upgraded stereo, leather, htd seats, etc. and it is a blast to drive. We have owned a few Volvos in the past (240, 850) and this one is by far the coolest (beats the stodgy S60 and S80 designs by a mile). It is peppy, even our 2.4i, gets good mileage, 32/22, and handles great, even in the snow. We are in MN and had two major storms this year. I popped the car in manual mode and plowed right out of 1-foot snow drifts, while our Camry bottomed out and got stuck several times. Great car.

Best Features

Heated seats, extra speakers, cool interior design and functionality. Decent cargo space for a compact. Quick!

Worst Features

A bit more leg room in the rear (though it is consistent with the other competitors like BMW, Lexus, etc.).
