Why Europeans tend to get it right
By Adam Lausch on
Vehicle2003 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewI must say that this is truly a unique car. I've rated it as unbiased as tough as I can. I simply love to drive it, and I've owned some pretty nice vehicles. I think one of its major downfalls is that Volvo didn't offer a manual transmission, that would be a blast. I love the V50s, but we were able to find a very nice V40 with low miles for $6K. I couldn't pass it up. So far I've have the check engine light come on once, and I think the ignition timing may have been off a bit. So I changed out a set of new high-performance plugs, and it's running superbly. Good performance, not great. It's so comfortable as well. Why buy a SUV for a small family when there are fun and economic wagons like this
Best Features1.9 Turbo torque, very fun to drive because it weighs just under 3000 lbs.
Worst FeaturesIt's peppy but a bit more HP couldn't have hurt. Where's the manual trans?
