1997 Volvo S40 Review






S40 T4 — The most understatedly cool car in the world. I have a Volvo S40 T4 thats the 200bhp turbo model. This car is insane and traction control is a definite must.. It also glides passed garda checkpoints without so much as a second glance. ( not that i need to glide passed the police) The car was maintained to the highest standard by the previous owner and has every reciept and document since its regestration. If ever a car stunned people with its surrise madness this is it. To see the faces on young boys as you dissappear down the road in a ploom of tyre smoke in a grey volvo is something magical. i would reccomed it to everyone.

Small Reliable Family Car By Wrieland

I liked the leather on this car, it made the front and the back seats enjoyable to sit in. Seems these cars will run forever if you keep the maintenance up to date. Gas mileage was good and the car ha... Read More
