My 2001 Volvo S40 — I have a great 2001 Volvo S40 1.9T. It has some wuickness to it and it also handles like a champ. The turbo is perfect for accelrating this heavy piece of machinery. Weighing in at almost 4,000 lbs, it is definanently a heavy car. But that is one of the things that make it one of the safest cars on the road. All in all, I LOVE MY CAR!MUY

Pros: good acceleration, good braking distance, good safety ratings

Cons: it is only a 1.9 Litre engine

Turbocharged Volvo Fun. — I just happened upon this car one day on the internet and eventually I went and checked it out. We brought it home for a test drive and I didn't want to let it go. It's fully loaded sans the sport package, so its very luxurious. But for me its what's under the hood. The 1.9 liter is small but with the right turbo and chip you'd be looking at 600 or more hp. Right now i get like 26mpg, not bad, other than a bad o-ring for the turbo there have been no major repairs. I have added foglights and lowering springs which make it better all around. It's alot of fun to drive and driving it doesn't make you look like a dork, because it's a luxury car after all, not a sub-compact ricer. All in All I don't think i could have found a better car for the money.

Pros: Good Performance Potential. Great Build. Great In Snow. A Lot Of Fun And Luxury For A Little Cash.

Cons: Stock Performance Is A Little Lacking But Still Good. Wish It Was Manual, Or Auto-Stick.

Volvo S40 - Rethink It — Has the most powerful brakes and fastest acceleration of any car I've driven or riden in. It has turbo so I can go 0 to 60 in 4 or 5 seconds. It handles great, I never get stuck in ice or snow, I never hydroplane, and I know if I hit anything I'll do more damage to it than it'll do to me. Looks great compared to the older models and then newer models - newer ones are ugly. Doesn't need to be maintained beyond the basics; looks newer than it is. VERY fun to drive.

Pros: read the review

Cons: it's not as hot as a ferrari, but hey

Awesome All-around Vehicle. — My 2001 S40 1.9 Turbo is a very fun vehicle to drive. Overall performance is great. Braking and acceleration is surprising and it's build quality is good. The Volvo's appearance is attractive. Very luxurious car. Gas mileage is the best I've ever driven and maintenance is needed very rarely.

Pros: Easy handling, very attractive, good on fuel and fun to drive.

Cons: Build quality could be better.

Great Everyday Car — Volvo makes great vehicles, and they built this one like a tank. While it is small, it fits everything I can think of. It has an awful radio and air-conditioning, but they fixed it in the next version.

Pros: Nice Acceleration, Lightweight Car, Great Safety Rating

Cons: Air Conditioning, Brakes, Two Cup Holders, Radio

My Volvo S40 — Well I'm not really a volvo guy but it's safe and reliable. I have issues leaving cars stock so I bought an intake, wheels, and a new grill for it. I plan on making a new exhaust of for it this summer and putting coilovers on. It will be one mean looking euro car in no time.

Pros: Roomie. Good gas mileage. Heated seats. Great in the winter.

Cons: Soft ride. Turbo lag. Low boost turbo. Only made them in automatic.

I Bought It Used. — I bought my car used at 70,000 miles. I put faith in the Volvo name even though I wasn't purchasing from a Volvo dealership. It had a good maintenance history- to my knowledge. Since My purchase (now at 75,000) I have had to replace the break pads and rotors and am now concerned that there is a transmission problem.

Take The Good W/ The Bad — I brought this car the 2nd year after it came out. It lived up to the Volvo name including the high priced maintenance. I expect higher end vehicles to require more maintenance, however I found myself constantly taking it back to the dealer for shorted lights, check engine, or service light. Thankfully they were minor fixes, but annoying and time consuming nonetheless.

Owner for 6 years, 11 months

Miles Driven per Year:20,000

Pros: At 146K miles it drives just as good as it did at 14K miles.

Cons: Wait a few years until they've worked the kinks out (like now, 2007). Headlights and rear lights are always shorting out.  Check engine light would go on with no problems being diagnosed.
