    2004 Volvo S40

    A Good Safety Car

    I like the features that Volvo is known for. Where on most cars they are considered as an add-on, it is standard on Volvo. I feel very secure driving this car. The safety features are the best! You would enjoy the ride!

    2004 Volvo S40 - T5 M (New)

    Pros: Don't have one.

    Cons: All the problems I have had. It's been in the shop lots.

    Advice: They are great cars. Just be patient because you WILL have to put it in the shop a few times.

    I love my car (and so does everybody else). I have had a few problems with it. The computer needed replaced. I found out because my stereo stopped working and my keyless entry wasn't so great. Now, one thing I will say is the keyless entry doesn't work all that great. You have to be pretty close. My fuel pump was recalled and the mechanic guy at Volvo said that it might happen again so watch the check engine light. That's boring! The back seat is a little cramped. I don't have the turbo so it's a little weak going up hills.. BUT I do love my car and would buy it again.

    2004 Volvo S40 - T5 M (New)

    Pros: T5 engine

    Cons: Small interior

    Advice: Test drive the S40 before you decide on another vehicle.

    This car is fun, exciting, and above all a Volvo. Safety and style are all you need to know about this slick little car. I have enjoyed every mile I have put on this auto.

    2004 Volvo S40 - T5 M (New)

    Pros: finish

    Cons: too small

    Advice: remember that it's a Ford in Swede clothing.

    Volvo is building quality into their vehicles. The T5 is a wickedly fast powerplant. Despite the drive-by-wire throttle it feels more natural than the Audi S4 and others. The only other car worth the money is an M3.

    2004 Volvo S40 - A ( for consumer ordering)

    Pros: Comfort, gas economy, performance

    Cons: Turning radius is bigger than my Mazda Miata

    Advice: Make sure you buy with moon roof option - makes this compact car big enough inside.

    Nice styling, all luxury features I could possibly want. 6-way leather seat is big enough for me (6'2' male). Gas economy is 26.5 mpg average for a 84 daily mile commute over a mountain and also thru rush hour traffic---slightly better than my previous Maxda Miata! Plenty of power. I can put my whole family in car. Turbocharger rushes in when needed with good power up to redline. I would not have bought car without moonroof option, makes this compact car seem much bigger inside. COMFORT is king with this Volvo.

    2004 Volvo S40 - 2.4i M (New)

    Pros: Rain sensor wipers

    Cons: Nothing!

    Advice: Buy one before the price goes up! These cars will be in high demand!

    Awesome car. I just bought this car last week and it has been a lot of fun to drive. The interior is very comfortable and cool! Center console is very modern and yet this car has a sporty but fine luxury feel to it. The performance on the NJ Turnpike has also exceeded my expectations. I do a lot of highway driving and this car has made the travel more fun and very comfortable.
