2008 Volvo S40 2.4i 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


Have been driving this car for over 2 years now. Love the overall look and build quality. Very different from other cars on the road. A few issues, fuel economy, loud interior, and surprisingly more than one blind spot due to the large columns (it's a safety thing...I get it) The drive is also not as European as I would have expected from a car competing with the likes of BMW, Audi and dare I say it, VW. It lacks that little oomph to get it at the same level as its German competitors. It doesn't get me excited, it gets me from A to B in style and safely.

Best Features

Interior and exterior looks. Reliability. Solid build.

Worst Features

Steering responsiveness Fuel economy more of a German feel Rear space
