2003 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Light, narrow and quick (once you get
past the turbo lag). Excellent for the
price, more fun and nicer than a
Subaru, etc. Performs comparably to
the BMW 3-series wagon, the MB C-class
wagon, or the Audi A4 series for much
less $. Handles well on snow.

Best Features

Turbo 1.9L engine, Winter/DSA mode, frisky handling, low-key exterior.

Worst Features

Only really irritating problem is soft paint. In the western US where sand is used on roads, this car will show a lot of pockmarks. Had to have the hood repainted with a more durable enamel, and a plastic bra is a must.
