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


We purchased this Volvo because we needed something with a little hauling
room, but wanted something that would protect us in case of an accident.
Face it, you don't get any safer than Volvo! The V40 is a great deal -- 90%
of the length of the V70 but about 60% of the price. So we knew we'd get
safety, but what about reliability, comfort and that fun factor? We're thrilled
to say we found them all in our V40. It's so solid, you feel like you're in a
Volvo as opposed to some mid-range car, it's sporty with really great pickup
(thanks to the turbo), and the seats are the most comfortable I've ever
encountered in a car. After 14 months, we couldn't be happier.

Best Features

Safety first and foremost: why drive anything else? Pickup and handling, both excellent. And a very sporty Volvo look. And can't forget those buttery leather seats -- aah!

Worst Features

Back seat is cramped for adults. Wish the hatchback was square to give more carrying capacity. Radio is hard to use. All minor complaints.
