Love it! But?
By thetruth on


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


Love my car it is a sexy fun car. I have the 6 sp manual and it is a straight rocket! One thing never, never, never, go to the dealer for service or problems. Volvo dealers are scam artists! I have a local mechanic who does all my maintenance and does better work for a 5th of the cost. He saved me when there was a recall on the pvc air box. My air box blew before the recall and when that blows your timing belt gets oil on it, when that happens the timing belt goes bad fast. Well he recommended I change it and probably saved me 4000. I've heard people who went the the dealer and didn't get the good advice and had to pay 4000 once it broke. When it could have been prevented.

Best Features

love the turbo. when cruising at 70 just touch the gas and the turbo kicks in and don't blink because that is how fast you will be doing 100! sweet!

Worst Features

i pod hook up. and the rear doors only open about 75 degrees. hard to get babies in and out.
