I really like our used Volvo S40. The car has a nice solid feel to it that makes going around curves and over bumps comfortable. The factory stereo is wonderful. I can only imagine how it must have sounded brand new! The very nice leather seats, even at this age, have no cracks or rips. The sunroof is a fun feature that we use a lot! It has never leaked even during a torrential downpour. In the past year, this car has only been in the shop for basic things like an oil change and brakes. I count brakes as normal wear and tear. What is there to say that is negative about the car? Not much! I don't like the very strange plastic key, but if that is the worst thing I can come up with ....WOW!
Story
The day I came out and found a family of squirrels in the car is a day I won't forget! I had left a window partly open by error and that had to be the day the squirrels invaded! Thankfully, other than totally destroying a bag of crackers I had left in the car, they did no damage.
Pros
My favorite feature of this car is the solid feel. I feel very safe in it. I also, as mentioned before, LOVE the non-leaking sun roof! This is a car that has never let me down. Freezing cold, the night I forgot the lights on for at least five hours, it ALWAYS starts!
Cons
The only thing I don't like about the Volvo S40 is the fake plastic key. It is just odd feeling and seems cheap and as if it would easily break.

Car handles and drives great no problems as of yet at 165,000 miles. Had timing belt replaced as suggested at 120,000 miles. Love the quick acceleration of the 4 cyl turbo and fuel millage 28/35, bought this to replace a Mercury Sable that had tree damage.
Story
I got to drive with my family around Olympia. The car got repaired on the way. We got to stop at a spot which was a beautiful place. The we get the car to repair shop and return to home with some fun and beautiful memory.
Pros
Very spacious, with lots of cargo room. Backseat is comfortable regardless of height. Handling is great, this car is a lot of fun to drive. Very reliable.
Cons
Fuel economy is average, no aftermarket stereo options. Volvo parts can be expensive.
