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


I am 6 foot 2 and was looking for a fun car with a stick and I am so glad my wife found the S40. A former motorcyclist with many miles in Europe under my belt, I was conditioned against a Volvo. The bigger sedans were always driven by drivers who really need the protection of the cage if you get my drift. I was pleasantly surprised by the roominess of the interior on test drive: all three kids fit snugly in the back, the truck was ample, and the handling nimble. Compared to my bikes and other cars, my previous car in the US was a 1991 SAAB Turbo SPG, the little blue car felt spunky but a tad underpowered - sadly the Turbo doesnt come in a stick. 42k later - still a great car at 28mpg!

Best Features

Room, ride, comfort, fuel economy

Worst Features

Fix those buttons that hold the mats in place, they always come out. Make it reasonable to put an iPod aux in the sound system.
