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


V40 rides very quiet. The difference
between windows open and closed is just
jaw dropping. Seating is comfortable,
nice appointments, excellent finishing.
1.9L turbo accelerates strongly into
traffic, although a little slowly with
the A/C on. Mileage, windows up and
A/C, highway was about 31.8 on cruise
control in hilly terrain. Handling is
good for a wagon. Swerves don't alter
the lean much, and the car feels ready
to turn at speed. Overall is well
crafted and toughly engineered. This
car may well outlast the oil reserves.

Best Features

Wash windshield. Wipes automatic about 4 times. Sleeps about 3 seconds and then cleans up with a single wipe.

Worst Features

Automatic rearview dimming. Cruise controls mounted on the wheel, or at least not so complicated where they are. Brake pedal taken about 1/2 inch left and made slightly larger.
