2002 Volvo S40 Problems

Engine -- Verified

The right front engine mount wears out prematurely, causing engine vibration at idle.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

The fuel pressure regulator can leak and cause a hard start condition, without any faults recorded in the engine computer.

Brakes -- Verified

There have been reports of premature rear brake pad wear. Our technicians recommend to inspect brake pads at each tire rotation interval.

Engine -- Verified

The turbocharger return pipe seal may develop an oil leak. The leak can begin very small, but will eventually progress into a large leak. Our technicians recommend having this repaired at first signs of leakage.

2002 Volvo S40 Reviews

Glenn Beck, NY

The car (2002 s 40), has been good, but it leaks oil (could be Turbo seal) and the seats are coming apart in spots. the sunroof leaks and won't stay tightly closed. Body is starting to rust through in a few spots around the wheels and rocker panel.

i bought my s40 from carmax in 2004 with 34k ,lots of cosmetic fixes mostl iterior , a new trans mission , my check engine light is on ,but it also goes of .i think i need a replacement cap other than a few issues the car runs well

My 2002 Volvo S40 has been a workhorse from the time we bought it brand new. It now has 157000+ miles on it and it is still running strong. Have had 2 issues--blower fan runs on its own accord no matter where you set it and had a caliper issue on one front brake it is constantly engaging even after putting on 3 new calipers.
