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


After 4 months and 4000 miles the S40 T5(prem,clim,conv,audio,auto)is doing okay. Chose FWD to improve MPG and reliabilty. Only service is for fuel pump gasket that causes the check engine light and they always try to blame on improper gas cap application. Pending service for weak Homelink transmitter and broken lens on light below ext mirror. The computer for radio and all the program functions needs to be rebooted occasionally. The OS must be MS product! It is just the right size for my wife(short),very responsive, unique, easy to park. It is costly and MPG is disappointing.

Best Features

responsive engine, good brakes, looks good,3 settings on power seats,great 6 CD radio, trunk package holder

Worst Features

defrost/down-tilt on outside mirrors, personalized key transmitters, faster motors on seat adjustment, fully automatic headlamps, quieter fan, flip- down rear headrests, move clock to center, coin holder
