2005 Volvo S40 2.4i Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


I use this primarily as an "airport" car so I wasn't looking to make an emotional purchase. I wanted a dependable, well-made, safe sedan that offered a warranty at least as long as my 48-month lease. I got a lot more than I bargained for with the S40 It's very rewarding to drive-- solid, smooth, and responsive enough with the 5 speed manual to have plenty of freeway acceleration. This car feels like it could be driven over 100MPH all day long without breaking a sweat. Fantastic interior with a very smart center control console. So much more car for the money than the Camry, Mazda 6, and Honda Civic I shopped it against. Would recommend to anyone. Great car, period!

Best Features

Center control console. Simple, intuitive, and very cleverly designed. Very smooth shifter. Solid, solid highway ride.

Worst Features

Needs a bigger center console armrest storage area. Other than that, Volvo nailed it...
