2006 Volvo S40 2.4i 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


Review

Well balanced car, Nice interiors, Silent cabin for this compact segment. A lot of security features for the money. 2.4i need more power. Suggest T5 for power busters.


Best Features

Fuel Economy, Interiors, Fun to Drive.


Worst Features

Gas and brake pedals very near, Suspension not comfortable in highway, too hard.

2006 Volvo S40 T5 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

My new S40 is incredible. I am 23 pre-dental student who never gave a thought to a Volvo until a friend recommended it. Now, I can't say enough about it. Its safety features are incredible and beat the heck out of its competitors. Not to mention that it rides very well, not too stiff, not too soft, but can handle curves and speed impresssivly well. Bottom line, it is safe, sporty, fun, and looks hot.


Best Features

Low compression turbo makes for a better ride while maintaining good gas mileage and sport acceleration.


Worst Features

Nothing that I can think of. It has the best of all of its competitors.

2006 Volvo S40 2.4i 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


Review

Exterior look is what captured my attention. Could use a little more storage space inside. Excellent sound system. Loud air conditioning when above the middle mark. Minor adjustments could be focused on & improved, like electric window movement (rattle-some)better mileage for it's size and engine(5 cyclinder). Other than that. Love it and would recommend the S40 for the young out-of-college professional because it's about 10k less than the 3 series BMW, with all the similiar perks.


Best Features

stereo, electric sun roof, interior and exterior look, choice of exterior colors, Interior leather seats and wood grain panel through out. Sporty, yet conserative and practical.


Worst Features

improvment can be done on interior storage areas, air conditioning is loud.

2006 Volvo S40 2.4i 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


Review

I love my S40! It is very stylish and different, but also super reliable and safe. I never thought I'd get hooked on Volvos, but I really am now. I just went out looking at new cars, but was drawn back to Volvo because nothing else compares.


Best Features

The reach-behind radio/console is both stylish and really user-friendly.


Worst Features

The material on the door is on the flimsy side. I was moving objects in and out of my car and found that it tears easily.
