    Small Reliable Family Car — 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 had a solid feel to it when you drove it, handling was okay. Great for family's, a safe feeling to drive and ride.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Smooth ride, dependable, great gas mileage

    Cons: Small

    S40 T4 — Performance: Original this car goes 0-100km/h in 7.3 sec, but mine is tuned a bit, so about a second quicker maybe!?! Build Quality: ok Apperance: OK Cost of Ownership: Paint job, high gas mileage, maintenance is nothing more than service each 10.000km and a lot of carwash :P Fun factor: Fun car to drive, YES. When the turbo kicks in, it's a lot of fun ;) but it's one negative thing about this car, FRONT WHEEL DRIVE

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Design and performance

    Cons: nothing, maybe the wrong wheel drive

    Volvo Is Awesome — Love this car! The turbo let's you have the performance of a 6cyl but fuel economy of a 4cyl. It drives great. Synthetic oil is a must conventional oil will kill a turbo. Treat it right and it will treat you right.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: handling

    Cons: several interior noises occasionally

    Volvo, Fun Safe Affordable — my car is a Volvo S40 T1.9. It needs a paint job, and the flex pipe coming from the engine has a hole in it that makes it sounds like a race car lol.. I dont want it to sound like that so im going to fix it when i get the money. the fun thing about my car is that with the t1.9 it gets up to speed pretty fast and now that the starter coils and the VTC ha been fixed by my father and I the car runs smooth, its light weight too

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun and safe

    Cons: right now the CD player isnt the greatest but the one it came with was awesome

    I Would Buy Another, Maybe A C30 — It was an Amazing car, very safe and sturdy. It is just that Volvos in general are hard to maintain and hard to find parts for. Any volvo is great but personally I would most likely go for the C series.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: safety

    Cons: repairs

    Ford's First Attempt On Volvo And Ruined Its Reputation — After totaled two cars, I suggested my mother to buy a Volve. This is the first year that Volvo came up with a car that is set at US$20,000 price range (thanks to Ford) so we went for it. On the way home on the first day, I tested the acceleration. Since this is a 1.8T, there is a turbo lack all the way until 50mph. Overall, the car is quiet and comfortable. However, I went back home 3 years later to drive the car again, it was very loud especially with the AC on. It also didn't give me the same sense of the legendary Volvo safety that my uncle's old 240 does on this car. It feels like just another Ford's "quality" product.

    Pros: Low profile which prevent thief

    Cons: Loud AC, cheap feel, lost the sense of the legendary Volvo safety

    Don't Be Fooled By This 200bhp Rocket! — 2.0-litre turbos in either standard or firey T4 format. Both are impressively pacy, particularly the T4 - which will happily melt a set of front tyres

    Pros: Comfortable, practical, safe, reliable, bonkers T4

    Cons: Rattles and squeakes. Eats Tyres
