2004 Volvo V40 Reviews

Bought our 2004 V40 as a certified used Volvo in 2006 and have put nearly 100,000 trouble-free miles on it. The only expense we've incurred other than routine maintenance is for the replacement of the glass on the passenger side mirror after someone knocked into it.

Some key pluses for the V40;
- Seats are comfortable, even on long drives;
- Heating and A/C are great. The A/C is strong and cools the car quickly and I'm always amazed by how fast the car heats up in the winter;
- While it's certainly not a sports car, it is peppy and responsive.

One somewhat annoying nit: if you don't screw on the gas cap exactly right, the 'Check Engine" light comes on.
