Need Better Coffee At the Repairshop
By Not Gonna Again on


2000 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon


Brakes done X4, and the brake warning
light is on AGAIN! You can bet the
headlight bulbs will burn out in 12
months (each side exactly 30 days
apart). Motormount vibration at
idle/stop is excessive. Turbo gasket
is leaking. Finish is wearing off the
steering wheel.

Overall, the car drives well, and is
good on gas when on highway; not so
good in town. Brake and tires have been
disappointing. A bit small inside.
The price for a Volvo was attractive,
but the downtime for repairs has been
unacceptable. Back to Lexus for the
next one.

Best Features

Turbo performance is sporty, as is exterior styling.

Worst Features

Even for a brand known for frequent brake service this has been ridiculous. Reliability really needs improvement. Perhaps the post-2000 models were better?
