Volvo s40 over 130k miles

Asked by Jun 14, 2017 at 09:31 PM about the 2006 Volvo S40 2.4i

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I'm currently looking for volvo s40's and I've found
one in my budget (a little under it) and want to
know if the car is worth purchasing with 147k
miles. They say they have kept up on brakes,
timing belt, and oil.I was looking at a Mazda Rx8
and was sold until I learned a but mire about the
rotary engine and anything 80k miles and up.  I
dont want get into the car and put 10k on it and
have it take a dump on me. If you guys could give
me a reasonable guess on how long it might last, it
would be much appreciated

It has everything to do with who-did-what up until it is at 147K. Look at carfax, see if regular maintenance was done. Personally I'd stay away from volvo's unless it has a rock solid history and is supremely clean... very expensive to replace parts. My opinion, not many people look for high-mileage volvos (as per the advice they gave you) so the odds of you reselling incase you find a failure and making up your money is slim. My point, get a thorough inspection.

I would avoid the Volvo S-40, they were somewhat troublesome. Also the RX-8 was a great handling car with a horrible engine that was very troublesome. The RX-8 got poor fuel mileage and burned oil. You need to look at Toyota, Honda and Ford for more reliable transportation.
