2000 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon


Headlights burn out annually. Rear
wheel alignment was needed to stop tire
burn. Original equipment tire model
not stocked locally, had to special
order from TX, twice (replaced all 4 at
19,000 mi).
Turbo exhaust seal started leaking at
25,000. Leather steering wheel melted
and had to be replaced. Steering
wheel squeak required replacement of
steering rack. Low hum vibration when
stopped in gear (suspect motor mount?).
Brake service frequent, but this is to
be expected with Volvo's.
All this sounds bad, however dealer and
factory have been generally great in
standing behind their product.

Best Features

Looks sharp, lot of safety for the $$$

Worst Features

A bit small inside. New V50 should fix that.
