00' Volvo V40 1.9t — The car was a handful always fixing one thing and another thing would fail or break or short. It was a surprisingly quick car although the turbo could have done better than it did but the car lived a good 8 years of abuse and high mileage and finally took an end at 237,696 mi. so... in my opinion that was long enough.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Volvo V40 1.8s — I got the Volvo V40 after owning a Renault Scenic (which was abysmal) I thought it was a great cat with good performance despite the fact it was only a 1.8. It was incredibly reliable and comfortable. Had to go because it made the missus sick on long journeys (she preferred the elevated position in the Scenic)

General Comments — Engine is powerful, although slightly unrefined. The car handles well although the penalty for this seems to be a firm, bumpy ride on most road surfaces. Seats are very comfortable and the interior is generally well designed; exterior styling very nice. Some build quality is perhaps not up to the standard of other Volvos. Not as much load space as some other estates in the class but as a lifestyle workhorse it's excellent.
