Bought a T- Reg Volvo S40 1.6 petrol base model as my first car and it's made me so happy I didn't get a common first car (Corsa, Micra etc). It averages about 35 mpg, using it for long distance motorway drives from Newcastle to Portsmouth. I've owned it for 4 months now, paid £500 and I've only had to change a main beam bulb. Engine is running smooth at 55K on the clock with full service history, it has absolutely no rust on the chassis or engine. Very comfortable for long distance driving… Read Full Review

I have had this as a company car in a bid to be green and reduce fuel bills etc etc.

I expected a robust and comfortable car like the S70 I used to own, but this is… Read Full Review

I have had exactly the same problems as the reviewer above. I had the Volvo S40 1.6 for 6 months and then the air conditioning failed. They tried to charge me to re-fill the gas before they could find the fault and said there was no guarantee that the problem would be covered by the warranty. So I complained directly to Volvo headquarters alleging that the dealer was trying to rip me off and that I would take them to the tribunal under the provisions of the warranty. Basically it would have… Read Full Review

I've had this Volvo S40 for about a year and from the day I bought it I've had problems. The anti roll bar came loose which was fortunately covered under the warranty as i bought it from a main dealer. The next thing to faulter was the air con. Took it to the dealer who was pleased to tell me that the regassing is not covered under the warranty, costing me £116. Within a month it started the engine started to cut out, took it back to the dealer who then carried out £176 of work without my… Read Full Review
