Volvo S40 T4 — Volvo S40 T4. Great car, 220 hp through the front wheels, bit mad, superb handling and great performance. 0-60 in 6 seconds!!! Top speed is about 150 mph!!! All leather inside and fully loaded with comfort features. Should have been rear wheel drive though, would have made all the difference. Another thing was the traction control would go crazy in wet conditions.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Elegant Rocket

Cons: Dodgy TC

Disco — Disco-car number one, but you must buy one white bigger engine, but you can buy lot of things to style this already good looking car. if you buy a red one prepar yourself to work a lot to make it stay red, or it will turn to pink.

Pros: it look good

Cons: 1,8L is to small for this type of car..

Excellent Car, Comfortable And Fast — The volvo S40 T4 gives 200 HP - awesome accelleration, nice turbo kick. Mileage is excellent, given that I do not drive it slow. Family saloon, comfortable and fast, huge loading space. Appearance is not extreme, which makes it even more fun to drive fast because people don't see it coming.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Performance

Cons: Nothing

A Car For Every Day, But Not Your Everyday Car — Here is a car that would certainly satisfy any driver, or at least most. Let's take a look at it. First, the design. Basically, straight lines combined with curvy edges, which were the signature Volvo design in the late 90's. It is a combination of both classic and modern design elements, which I find is a beatiful effect. Definately not a common car. Now, the performance. This 1998 Volvo S40 is powered by a 1.9 Turbo Diesel engine - euro spec, you guessed it - which totals 105 hp. Not much, isn't it? Well it gets the job done, if you are looking for a decent car to get you around. Besides, the engine is very reliable and healthy. A smooth ride, with decent power, as long as you don't ask too much from it. The positive aspect is when it comes for you to put gas in your tank. This Volvo proves to be a real gas saver, with an MPG of 35. That is much for a 10-year old car. Maintenance is also prety cheap. Since I have bought it, I only changed the oil and added glass washing liquid. That's it! Another gereat aspect of this car is its quality. Indeed, the overall build quality is very good for a vehicle this old. The paint is well preserved. As you can see it, the car looks like new and has no sun dammage. The interior is mixed. Some parts, such as the ceeling and most of the dashboard are very good and other parts are crap, like the door handles and some of the dash. All in all, a car for every day - it combines everything a normal driver needs - but not your every day car - definately not a common one.

Pros: appearance, build quality

Cons: performance

Great Car — I'm still wondering why I sold this one. It was great, always working, air condition, electric windows, integrated seats for kids, central locking, ABS, leather seats, intelligent audio system controlling so that it heard always because it was controlling the volume compared to ambient noice (road and engine and so on), cruise controll heated side mirrors...I shouldn't of sell this one but I guess that 5 years got me bored with it. Nice one!!

Pros: all

Cons: its not mine anymore
