Weird Sounds, Other Troubles-a Mistake!
By Paul Margolis on


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


This is my third Volvo (740 960 and now S40) I am very disappointed with the quality and support from volvo. Pressure sensor was bad inside gas tank and fixed by dealer. The car makes very annoying Owl-like sounds, which the dealer has not fixed. Supposedly volvo is working on a computer software fix. The clock occasionally resets itself--another annoying feature. Save your money for a higher quality car. Do not expect any help from Volvo when you complain....apparantly Volvo has lost all class after having been bought by Ford.

Best Features

The acceleration is good, but a bit nonlinear (jerky).

Worst Features

Improve noise insulation. Improve overall quality of the S-40 which is not up to previous Volvo standards in my opinion.
