Very Good Car Experience — I can't believe that I actually survived an entire 3 year lease with this car. Solid handling, very sporty, 6-speed manual. It has a very minimialist Scandinavian interior. Almost too minimalist. I'm returning the car at the end of the lease and am going car-less.

Pros: Old faithful. Never let me down, very sporty, fast, great handling. Nice rims.

Cons: NO AUX-IN JACK FOR AN MP3 PLAYER. This was the biggest thorn in my side. I burned CDs non-stop for 3 years.

I Love This Car, Just Want Something A Tad Bigger — I really like this car but I am wanting something a little bigger and faster. I bought this car as a summer commuter car, I have a pickup but it gets about 17-19 MPG's average. I average about 32-34 MPG's in the summer with A/C on. Road trips 35-36 MPG's with A/C on. Winter driving I haven't really kept track but its about 25-27 MPG over about 4 tanks due to letting it warm up for 15 minutes 2 times a day to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sporty, quick, nice front seats. It is turbocharged, it gets average 32-34 MPG's in the summer with A/C on. Road trip with A/C on 36 MPG's. Winter I haven't really kept track but its about 24-27 MPG due to letting it warm up for 15 minutes 2 times a day to drive.

Cons: The build quality is very good except for the rattle in the slider for the sunroof. It is a bit small for me. The back seats are good for children but not for adults.

2005 Volvo S40 T5 Review
Igor says:
Thanks to T5 engine this car takes speed in fast manner. You feel the power, especially with its manual transmission. It had some shortcomings and required additional fixing that would cost, I believe, another $1.5k, but I would buy it. Unfortunately the other buyer was first and with fair play it had more rights to buy it.

Handling Ranked 2014 Volkswagen Jetta S better.
"it is smaller and lighter. That allows to sneak in smaller gap between cars and easy to change the lane."
Would Buy Ranked 2014 Volkswagen Jetta S better.
"I came to see this car later than the other buyer and he used his priority. Even though Jetta costs more, it is much newer, has lower mileage on it, warranty and you have nothing to do with it. Just get in and drive."
