2005 Volvo S40 T5 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

There is a known design defect where, if the sunroof drains that run down the doors of the car clog, water drains into the interior of the car from the lower part of the doors. Absolutely ridiculous. You need to regularly clear the drains with compressed air. My interior is ruined as a result of water damage.

Also, 2005 models don't come with an auxiliary jack or bluetooth, and you can't put an aftermarket CD player in. You're looking at around $1000 to replace the CD player at the dealership if something goes wrong.

It also seems the only problems I've had with the car required me to go to the dealership for repairs.

Review

It is a 2005 Volvo S40. Still feel pretty good driving it. Still has the feel of an old luxury car.

This was my first car; while not real fancy, it was reliable. I never had a problem with the car. Regular service, but never a major repair

Review

Ive had a slew of issues and high cost repairs on this car. From struts, to transmission issues, gear module, etc. Every car needs service, what makes Volvo "special" is it takes a Volvo specialist to make necessary repairs and usually at high cost. A 2 yr lease is probably the way to go if you desire a Volvo, purchasing one will be a forever quest in high cost maintenance.
