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


I bought the S40 T5 "slightly used" at the beginning of the year; it never let me down once. The car looks cool without being flashy and the interior is smartly designed. It just plain runs and is sturdy as an ox. It even has above-average pickup for such a tiny 4-door packed with so many options. Unfortunately, 10 months later due to some questionable road conditions I got intimate with a concrete wall. The Volvo wasn't exactly indestructible-- the entire driver's side was smashed in. I was a bit smashed in myself, but thankfully nothing permanent. I'm convinced that the Volvo saved my life. I'm driving a clunker today, but you can bet that I'll be a Volvo customer for life.

Best Features

Leather upholstery, center console, quiet cabin, sleek design, side airbags.

Worst Features

Better fuel economy, smoother auto shifting, quieter defroster. I'm really nitpicking here. I might opt for AWD next time.
