Great car - true Volvo reliability?
By Luke on


2007 Volvo S40 T5 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


I've had the car for about 3 months and am a fairly satisfied customer. I spent several months debating between an Audi A4, BMW 325xi and finally settled on the S40. Considering cost, performance, reliability, etc., the Volvo appeared to come out on top. The car worked flawlessly until last week - 2 fault codes: #4 injector failure and evaporative canister purge. Let's hope the dealership service is as good as its reputation. Only drawback so far - poor fuel economy, even with 91 octane. 21 city, 26 hwy @ 65 mph. Still optomistic at this point.

Best Features

Premium sound, 6M trans, big brakes, great linear power for a turbo with very little lag.

Worst Features

10,000 oil change intervals; no need for 3k changes. Larger charge air-cooler; performance drops off significantly above 30C ambient. Eliminate cooling fan calibration when starting; very annoying and loud!
