T5 is very unique and great power
By Luis H on


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


T5 engine is a must have. got it in red and is very good overall. still looks like new almost 6 years later. 1st few months was a rear brake grinding noise that took several visits to replace. Then the sunroof molding kept coming off. turbo valve had to be replaced. 2 years ago my oil trap had to be replaced at about 75K miles. Dealership and Volvo denied this was an issue. Cost $600. 3 months later my wife's 2005 T5 s40 had the same problem at around 75K miles but volvo still denied this was an issue or a recall. 2 exact cars w/ the same issue at around 75K owned by same family on long island not an issue????? 3months later recall issued. now both cars have water leaks when it rains

Best Features

unique look. pretty fast car. remote control opens windows.

Worst Features

more room for the back passengers, dealership needs to be more helpful. needs a security beep when doors open/lock. trunk opening needs to be bigger. blind spots when looking to switch lanes.
