MANUFACTURER INCENTIVE by David, Diamond Bar, CA on 01/24/2004. Trim: 2003 Volvo S40 1.9T, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Manufacturer Incentives! The incentive to the dealer (in the range of $4000) from the manufacturer - makes this model a can't miss (when available). This incentive is apart and separate from any discount you may obtain from a club store store i.e. Costco or Sam's Club. I coupled the dealer incentive (which the dealer passed on to me) along with a club store discount (Costco). I purchased the car $6K under sticker for approximately $22K plus tax & license. If your interest is in the Sport Package, simply purchase the Leather Option. Then, add the rear spoiler, fog lights, engine compartment stabilizer bar and there you have it!
Cons: If you're taller than 6', alighting from the driver side may be cumbersome. The seating seems to be designed for weight of no more than 220 lbs. By 16,000 miles, the feel (seating) is noticeably different. The seating of the S60 could have been incorporated here, so to provide a most comfortable driving experience. This vehicle is a "3 Seater" at best. With the driver seat configured to accommodate a 6' driver, the rear driver side seat may not be utilized. Move up to the S60 for a family of four.
Overall review: When the manufacturer to dealer incentive is offered, I do not believe there is a better car in its class for the price. We went back and purchased a second and modified as indicated for our son.
