I purchased a 2006 Volvo S40 as a first car for my son and was worth every penny spent. Though he eventually totaled the car it was worth it. The road handling and maneuverability were excellent. Mileage and gas were wonderful great vehicle all around

First Volvo Won't Be The Last — I've driven Honda's exclusively for more than 20 years. This is my first Volvo product and will not be the last. The car is well built, easy to maneuver, comfortable, and gets surprisingly good gas mileage for a car this size. The interior is well laid out and very quiet. Even though it's a 2006 model, the styling isn't dated and still draws positive attention wherever I go.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Extremely comfortable.  Interior is well laid out.  Great gas mileage.  Good power for a naturally aspirated engine.  Elegant appearance.

Cons: No local dealership, maintenance costs has to include a trek to the dealership 60 miles away.  Stereo is not as good as I'd expect from a car of this caliber.

Great Family Or Commuter Car — I like how clean the car feels inside and out. The tinted front and rear windows are a nice touch too. Great fuel economy, handling and stopping. Silver color helps keep the car looking clean year round. Love this car!

Pros: Handling, low maintenance, reliable

Cons: Sometimes repairs on foreign cars is more expensive than I would like.

I Love My S40 — The only bad thing about the Volvo is trying to chase down a check engine light, the best thing to do is leave them alone and just enjoy the car. If the car drives good, not running hot and all of the fluids are up to snuff, well then just forget the check engine light and keep driving.

Pros: I have been driving Volvos forever, and I love them

Cons: Only a few dealers around with the software to work on them

Dont Buy!! Cant Believe There Is Good Reviews About This Car.... — 2006 Volvo S40 2.4i First of all I have never been incline to write a vehicle review before (I just read them), but I feel so aggravated with this car that it’s impossible for me to ignore. I can summarize by saying AVOID THIS CAR AT ALL COST even if it’s a birthday gift, Worst Car Ever!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Pros: It’s a good looking car (different from others) I won’t give any stars for that..It may deserve couple stars here and there but with my experience all those dont matter!!

Cons: Cons:  Parts are expensive and sometimes have to special order, hard to be work on (and it does need a lot of mechanic visits, so be prepared to pay for hourly rate for the dumbest thing), If changing spark plugs (inaccessible until you take almost the whole car apart) requires an specialist and it takes 2 HOURS to do than you should know that it’s ridiculous…. Wait, my key just got stuck on the ignition ‘cause the computer needs an update??? And the new module (update) it’s going to cost me $300.00??? ; What?! My cylinder head cracked AGAIN and it’s another $1,500 AGAIN? ....  My “Immobilizer” when off and I can’t turn on my car so I have to tow it and pay $50 to fix it… That’s not all but to summarize don’t even consider to buy that piece of s%^&t

I'd Buy Another. — This has been one of my favorite cars, and it's remained interesting to me for a longer period of time than I had expected. The design seems fresh after all these years, and mine has held up very well - quality materials look as good as they did when I purchased it. It's much more fun to drive than comparable japanese or US sedans, yet isn't as common as a BMW 3 series.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I like the design, the comfort, and not seeing one in every spot in the garage at work.

Cons: I hate that I can't use my iPod with the sound system.

Sporty — Amazing fuel mileage, sports car feel, luxury package, sunroof, leather, bose stereo sound, all in all an awesome car for someone without kids! Very attractive appearance, Ive never done anything to this car except have it serviced! Virtually shop free, trustworthy vehicle. Super fun to drive, tight sporty steering.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Love to drive her! Huge trunk for a sports car.

Cons: My kids are huge and I cant manage to stuff them into this car anymore!

Volvo S40ness — This car zips around traffic with ease. Build quality is the greatest from super stiff body shaft. Performance is incredible. Gets you from point A to point B in less time than predicted. Great gas mileage. Fun to drive? YES!

Pros: All

Cons: None
