2000 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon


I've had a 2000 V40 since 10/99, and
haven't experienced any of the problems
described by an earlier reviewer. In
fact, the car's excellent handling and
brakes have already saved my life a few
times. This is our family's seventh
Volvo in about 30 years; each has
lasted at least ten years. We just
sold our still-running '84 240.

Best Features

Great handling, brakes, air conditioning, heating, visibility, and seat comfort. The back seats fold down, and the back deck comes out, leaving tons of cargo room, or, in a pinch, a place to sleep.

Worst Features

Rubber bumpers would be nice, but it seems that the entire industry has switched to painted ones. Also, I'm quite happy with the automatic transmission, but I generally prefer manual and would have appreciated the ability to choose.
