Volvo used cars like the S40 and the V40 have a European flavour of design to them. I find that the famous Swedish automaker has a unique design to all there models and this sets there style apart from other car companies they compete against. When the Ford Motor Company decided to buy the Swedish Car Company in the late nineties, early 2000’s, it had a different view on how they wanted their vehicles to look. The days of looking at Volvo models designed as a shoe box were gone.
Volvo S40 used cars:
Ford wanted its Volvo operations to develop a car that could compete in the North American compact market place. When both models were officially launched in 2000, the Volvo used a 1.9-litre, four-cylinder engine that was turbocharged. Some of the bad reviews that I have seen on various websites suggest that the engine is not powerful enough, it lacks the speed to compete against the likes of a BMW 3-series or a Mercedes-Benz C-class. The one thing I did come out with when researching about this particular brand, was how these Volvo used cars have great fuel stats.
I found a couple of fuel stats for the years of 2000 and 2004. In 2000 the Volvo S40 and V40 had a 10.5-litre, per 100km for city driving and a 6.6-litre, per 100km, for highway driving. In 2004 it had fuel ratings of 10.9-litre, per 100km, for city driving and 7.3-litre, per 100km, for highway driving. If there is one reason to like or to buy one these Volvo models, it’s because of what you save filling up the car at the gas station.
Let’s take a look at some of the pros and cons of the Volvo S40 and the V40.
1- There is an issue with a pounding noise coming from the front wheel suspension.
2- It only has been giving an average rating as a used car by several leading automotive websites.
3- There is a problem with the climate control module that has the fan stopping or only working on one speed.
4- It has been giving a good rating by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety organization, for its frontal crash test done to it.
Volvo used cars like the S40 and the V40 are an average car at best, I don’t see anything that suggests it’s a great used car.
