Volvo replaces a winner
By siwanoy on


2004 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


I don't understand why Volvo replaced
this pure winner in 2005. We went
shopping for a Mini or something similar
to offset the gas guzzling mileage of
our SUVs and found this V40 wagon small
enough, wonderfully fuel efficient
(occasionally averaging 30 mpgs for a
tankful), with quality fit and finish
and ever so much more practical than
compact sedans. It is responsive in
every way, has been great in the snow,
and is fun to drive. It is the perfect
car for an empty nest couple who still
need to move things from place to place
and are still young enough to want a
great driving drive vehicle.

Best Features

styling, handling, nifty cargo storage extras (belts, nets), gas mileage, quality cabin, intuitive controls

Worst Features

A simpler radio, ground clearance in front too low, bigger rear view mirror would be a plus
