Car Review: 2009 Volvo S40
July 18, 2016, 12:36 AM
Bought 2009 Volvo s40 2.4i 5cyl in summer of 2009 Houston TX... Full time driver, 40 hrs, personal vehicle...
Next month will be 7 year mark. I have had 0 "brake downs" to this day. 240,000 miles
-Major issues with AC clutch,
-Major problems with catalytic converters, holes in flexpipe before cat
-lower ball joints, control arms front suspension have also had many replacements.
I did not put money into maintenance, in fact, timing belt once at 140k and fuel pump at 210k are the only 2 repairs that have been completed (excluding 3 issues mentioned above)
USE PREMIUM SUPREME GASOLINE
Amazing machine. Absolutely recommended. Volvo for life.
