Overall:

Well Designed, Pacey And Solid — Great design features, well laid out instruments and controls. Solid build and still quite a rare car. Performance is more than adequate, fuel economy could be better, ride quality and comfort up there with the best. Engine is refined and responsive.

Pros: Build qulity, design, comfort

Cons: Small fuel tank, Boot could be better

Great Overall Value For European Brand! — I love the handling of the car and the beauty of its design. Would definitely go with the Turbo (2.5T) next time around. The seats are comfortable, but not much leg room in the back seats. Sound quality from stereo is great. But most of all, I really like the floating dashboard!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great handling, good fuel economy.

Cons: Leg room for rear passengers.

2008 Volvo S40 Review
Megan says:
Never buying a volvo again. Loved my 1986 240dl, but this car was a mistake. Timing belt blew after two days of owning it. Has oil leakage problems, electrical problems, will just shuts off in the middle of driving sometimes. No A/C, like all volvos the A/C compressor goes out like clockwork. The turbo makes it fun to drive and its comfortable aand stylish, but way too many problems and too expensive to repair.

Power Ranked 1986 Volvo 240 better.
"This thing is a tank."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 1986 Volvo 240 better.
"The boxiness of the cab just makes it much roomier. Could probably fit four people in the trunk lol. "
