2001 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Bought with 58,000, now at 74,000. Nothing beyond the 60K service and oil changes. Paint is worst feature. Added mud flaps and euro-rails for a little character and sport exhaust, K&N filter, Bilstein gas shocks and a heavier sway bar for fun. Very responsive, very quick, very nice. As noted on these, the brakes will need replacing after about 20K, but it still stops well (they were new at purchase). Overall, this is a great vehicle. Yakima box onto the rails and I can fit all I need to camp with my wife and two small children. Once they get a little older, the back seat will be too small; it's tight back there!

Best Features

Good handling, quick response; add the K&N filter if that's all you do. Oh, forgot the safety; all that good Volvo stuff is in there. Nice tunes too.

Worst Features

Better paint!!
