    Volvo's Are Beasts..... — Driving a volvo is like a sunday afternoon in front of the TV, the kind of sunday afternoon that follows roast beef and yorkshire puddings.... Probably watching something with Julie andrews in it...... The best thing about my volvo is that its absolutely fab... Without a doubt offering the best drive......

    Pros: Its a volvo

    Cons: Nothing

    Fast And Furious — This car is amazing. It's amazingly spacious for being a smaller car. I'm 6'7" and I sit as well in this S40 as I do in some mid to large size vehicles. The turbo in this car makes it one of the fastest cars in its class. Volvo always have the most comfortable seats, a big plus for anyone who likes to drive so you don't have to stop every so often to rest your bum. The whole point is to drive for as long as the tank takes you.

    Pros: Really price worthy, very fast, terrific handling, comfortable seats, great design.

    Cons: When fully using the turbo, a lot of power is pushed on the front wheel drive, which makes the front slightly unstable in hard accerleration. Not much space in the back seat.

    Fun Car To Drive — I've had the car since new, its fun to drive but it understeers too much. I hope to correct that with a thicker rear stabilizer bar. Power is very good & engine likes to rev. Fuel economy is good too.

    Pros: i work at volvo

    Cons: i work at volvo

    Stylish And Well-built European Sports Sedan With Typical Volvo Safety Features In Mind! — Extremely well-built and durable car. Handles like a nimble sports sedan should! High quality interior materials and very well thought out interior! Volvo made safety a TOP priority with everything that went into the S40. Comfy & supportive front seats, back seats a bit cramped though. Cool "IKEA designed (not really)" front center column, nice space in back of it to stash items. Reliable and decent on gas...only had to replace battery, tires, and cabin air filter...no real issues at all...rare thing to say about a European car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Extremely well-built and durable car.  Handles like a nimble sports sedan should!  High quality interior materials and very well thought out interior!  Volvo made safety a TOP priority with everything that went into the S40.  Comfy & supportive front seats, back seats a bit cramped though.  Cool "IKEA designed (not really)"  front center column, nice space in back of it to stash items.  Reliable and decent on gas...only had to replace battery, tires, and cabin air filter...no real issues at all...rare thing to say about a European car.

    Cons: Strange pedal design and layout:  Accelerator & Brake Pedals are very small AND too close together, shoes with thick or wide heels were an issue (less of a problem with standard width footwear like sneakers or dress shoes).   Cabin Air Filter is VERY hard to get at and pricey to replace (pedals have to be removed...ugh!).  Volvo's idea of a fog light is having ONE rear bulb light up brighter when button depressed (not practical or useful AT ALL!).  2.4i model needs brighter halogens or better yet, Bi-Xenon headlights AND FRONT fog lights,  A little bump in HP from the 2.4L 5 cyl engine would've been nice.  Boxy looking rear design, not 100% aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
