Volvo S40 T5 Review — loved this car. Safe, yet sporty! Very reliable and enjoyable to own. Good gas mileage for class. Great amenities, leather, wood paneling, sunroof, seat warmers, etc. comfortable for long trips as well as for scooting about town. Small enough to fit tight parking spaces and large enough to not feel like you would be crushed like an aluminum can if you were ever be involved in an accident.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun to drive. Quick acceleration. Tight handling

Cons: not large enough for multiple children and all the stuff you have to carry around with them.

Great Car — For a borderline compact car, it feels wonderfully spacious on the inside. The back seat can comfortable fit two tall persons, and the front seats have plenty of room to spare. Trunk is large as well, and can carry far more cargo than you think it should. Acceleration is a little timid, but all in all a very fun car to drive, it handles very well on dry or wet pavement, ice or snow. I have had a great experience with this car, and would highly recommend Volvo to anyone looking for a new car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very spacious, with lots of cargo room. Backseat is comfortable regardless of height. Handling is great, this car is a lot of fun to drive. Very reliable.

Cons: Fuel economy is average, no aftermarket stereo options. Volvo parts can be expensive.

Nice Ride For A Small Family — Love the car, love the handling and the acceleration, surprising. Would liek it better if it was bigger. Larger families won't fit. Nice little car for the right price, as I mentioned above my wife can't drive in the snow, she was able to get the kids around town without any problems. I can drive anything in the snow but this was like I had 4 wheel drive

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great car, first car my wife was able to drive in the snow without crashing!!

Cons: Small and center console is annoying

Great Car All Around! — The appearance of this car is sporty and very cute!! I got so many complements on it!! It was very comfortable. Gas mileage was good. 22 City, 30 Highway. i crqacked my oik pan twice because I have a very rough, dirt driveway in the mountains. The oil pan is made of aluminum so it cracked very easily. Maintenance and parts were not cheap! On the other hand, I felt very safe and this car is a blast to drive!

Pros: I abosolutely love my car!! I bought it used for a great price and it hasn't deprieciated much! It was my first car and was very reliable!

Cons: The finish on the bumper chipped off. Also the parts and maintenaince for this car was very expensive.

The Bottom Line Is That The Car Gets U Wear You Need To Go With Any Problems Just Regular Maintance — it's a all around good car it's safe good looks and reliable the build makes it very stredy no roll over nice traction on the road heated seats. It's fun to drive smooth the gas isn't to touchy but can be.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reason to drive because it is a fun and reliable car

Cons: when the defog is on the radio goes off
