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


Picked up a loaded T5... Was going to
order a 2.4i but opted to drive the
turbo... Worlds apart in
acceleration. The car just wants to
fly coming out of second gear. Sixth
gear is great travling down the
interstate. Handling is good on back
roads. Little rough on the interstate,
but that is to be expected. All the
controls are laid out nicely - Center
stack is really neat, did not even
notice the storage behind it. Options
on car - Premium, Sport, Audio,
Climate, Convenience, DSTC, and BI-

Best Features

6spd Manual - Who buys a car with this kind of performance with an auto? Premium audio - Very nice setup Premium Package - Very comfortable leather

Worst Features

Front seats with more lateral support to hold the body down in high speed cornering.
