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


I dare you to test drive this car. You
will be astounded and amazed. I was. I
mean after all, it's a Volvo. The
brand's not exactly the spicest salsa
on the shelf. Yet, this car has the
horsepower and acceleration of a BMW
330 and A4 3.0 for thousands less. The
interior is innovative and clean, while
torque steer is negligble. And during
the winter months you'll laugh at all
those "rear wheel drive" snobs stuck in
a snow bank. The brakes are sure
stopping, and it's safer than a pillow.
My wife's a little speed demon who
loves this ride and the times are few
and fortunate when I can take this baby
for a spin.

Best Features

Handles like a rear wheel drive car. Gas mileage in the high twenties Safety features for my wife, racer X

Worst Features

Tighter seams around the trunk "beeps" for locking/unlocking car
