Great at first, all down hill
By Tony on


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


When I purchased it it was great and reliable. Since then I've had the radio glitch which is very annoying. I've had the A/C repaired it stopped blowing cold air. I'm a 200 Lb. guy and the back of my seat where the lumbar support is snapped. I have the dynamic trim package which as the sport suspension not a very comfortable ride when you hit bumps in the road. I've had lowered cars ride more comfortable than this. My power door locks don't lock from the remote anymore. Now after almost 5 years I'm about to sell this car it was a good car but I wouldn't buy another Volvo.

Best Features

Styling, acceleration, and fuel economy

Worst Features

Radio glitch, heated seats don't get very warm, key fob removable silver key doesn't secure inside the main fob anymore on both keys and this was from the beginning.
