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


I'm not a big fan of this car and anxiously await the end of the lease. It's just not reliable enough, something is always going wrong and the service people act like they're doing you a big favor to fix it, even warrantly items that just should not be a problem so soon. With that scenario, rattles, wind noise, and poor gas mileage (22 mpg), I'll be looking elsewere for my next ride.

Best Features

hugs the road well, exc pick-up good acceleration good radio great a/c comfortable seats, nice leather

Worst Features

Poor gas mileage (22 mpg avg) Low front end gets caught on cement parking lot stoppers Car has been in shop many times for "computer problems" phantom messages, door locks, exterior lights, fuel levels. Many repairs-warranty items, why? Front storage (console and glove) is stingy
