2002 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


This is my first Volvo and I really love
the car. I drive my cars pretty hard
and this car has held up well, minus the
problems which seem to be unfortunately
quite common for the V40. The v40 is
fun drive- handles well and is quite
zippy. Front seats are very
comfortable. Some people have
complained about the non-standard radio
controls, but I think they are the most
effective and useful controls I have
ever used. Tuning knob to scan through
20 presets makes more sense than
separate preset buttons and is much
easier to use while driving. Common
problems affecting this vehicle are:

1) brakes wear out quickly.
2) electrical system burns through

Best Features

front seats, radio controls, performance
