Volvo S40 Reviews and Owner Comments
2005 Volvo S40Visitor, Seattle, WA, November 06, 2012 13:39I recently walked out to my car to notice that the right brake light cover is smashed. Anyone have an estimate as to how much this will cost to replace?
2005 Volvo S40Visitor, Saint Paul, MN, August 15, 2012 12:22I have 110,000 and have been extremely happy with the car. Extended the warranty and pretty much everything needing repair was normal wear. Plan to drive it to 200,000

2002 Volvo S40Visitor, Skaneateles, NY, December 07, 2011 10:43Glenn 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.
2000 Volvo S40Visitor, Bonaire, GA, October 15, 2011 18:17I desperately need an air tube for a 2000 S40 turbo. I looked on line and the product I can come up with was the K & N generation 1 performance edition air tube. Would this work on my car? If it does it is misleading because the K & N models do not have an attachment that connects to a smaller tube that attaches to the radiator. Is anyone tracking?

2005 Volvo S40Visitor, Charlotte, NC, June 21, 2011 05:27I have a 2005 Volvo S40 that I got about 5.5 years ago. i got it for the safety and reliability- or so I thought. About three years ago it started falling apart. I had to replace a balljoint, shocks and struts, rotors, etc. I am currently on my 3rd set of tires. The drain lines CONSTANTLY get clogged causing water to back up in the floorboards. Everytime I go in for something simple like an oil change or an inspection, I end up having to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars for for unexpected repairs. The over all cost of maitenance of this car is a flat out nightmare- Steer clear.
2000 Volvo S40Visitor, Aurora, ME, May 27, 2011 00:17My 2000 S40 is a very good car, however given me headaches with endless problems. It has done 187 000Km and already I had to replace all my shocks and shock mountings, my engine mountings are making noises now. My biggest headache is my electronics, headlights not working correct, central locking not working all the time, radio aerial not working. I have been to an electrician and he says the Multifunction Control Module needs to be replace, however i have searched high and low and this part is not available in SA. I need help or will have to sell...
2005 Volvo S40Visitor, Kendall Park, NJ, May 06, 2011 06:55the car is not yet 6 years old and i am told that the passenger air bag sensors are burned out - the repair cost $1700+ dollars - i thought volvo was a dependable safe car but at the cost of their repairs it is not worth it - i could get a engine for the price of a small sensor - the air bag never deployed - the car was never in an accident and i am told these things just wear out - WHY should it wear out - very very disappointed
2002 Volvo S40Gerald52, Smithsburg, MD, April 26, 2011 16:51My 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.Enthusiast
2000 Volvo S40Visitor, Chicago, IL, December 30, 2010 21:51Overall my 2000 Volve S40 has been a good car, but now it won't pass my city's emission test. I really like this car, and I hope this isn't it's end.
2005 Volvo S40JasmineS40, Milford, CT, December 08, 2010 10:37My car has approx. 27,000 miles and I'm already starting to have problems with it (starter contorl unit, radio, A/C). I was hoping to keep it for a long time but in this case I'm planning to replace it with a Toyota. What a disappointment, I was convinced Volvo was one of the best. Not any more...Enthusiast
