Good balance between comfort, luxury, power and economy. by The Running Turtle from Montreal on 06/28/2006. Trim: 2004 Volvo V40 LSE, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Good balance between power and fuel consumption, the best front seats I have ever sat in, relatively quiet ride, good handling in the snow with the special transmission setting (W) and the DSA, good equipment (I would have liked a compass - a gadget but I like it), nice overal design. Good service at the dealer (Laval, near Montreal).
Cons: Many small technical problems: had to change engine supports, electronic board for the instruments, radio, antenna; the tailgate glass leaked and there were a few annoying problems related to cold weather. And now, after only 30 000 km (or so), the OEM tires are screwed up and I should change them although the wear is still OK.
Overall review: The overal quality and reputation of Volvo vehicules has slightly decreased over the years. The management is apparently aware of that and is supposed to correct the situation. Overall, even with the minor flaws, I am quite satisfied with mine. It is currently on lease and I intend to buy it at the end of the contract.

Volvo Only!! by Mrs. Volvo on 03/15/2004. Trim: 2004 Volvo V40 LSE, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: For the price, you can't go wrong. It's sporty and it carries the volvo sense of security blanket. Options are very good and gas mileage is great. For the exterior size the inside is very spacious.
