"I had my volvo for 2 years. It was a great car. As much as people say its expensive to fix... thats a joke. I ordered all my parts from ebay. The parts were way cheaper than a couple of my other cars. Being smart about buying your parts and who you have put them in is where you save money. But recently i flipped my volvo from front to roof and roof to drivers side and back onto its wheels. My sister and her little dog where with me. We had a couple of scratches.. like 2 each. and a bump on our heads. the car unfortunately is being considered totaled because the back of the roof is dented and a rear window will not be able to be put back in. A deer ran into the side of the car and did no damage. She was a great car and never left me stranded. She drove great and handled wonderfully!"

"We bought our S40 brand new after losing our Avalon in a house/garage fire. It has the sports package and the winter package all rolled into one. The spoiler on the back makes it more attractive than the ones without. It has leather seats (heated) and is a joy to drive. My husband is a large guy, so it is a bit small for him, but for me, it fits like a glove! I love how it handles as well as how it looks."

"I have owned 4 Volvos. 1 New and 3 used. I put 125,000 on all of them. They run like work horses. 1 had an issue with the hydraulic tranny but a $200 flush did the job. I have done basic maintenance and they all live long and happy lives! In 2004 they changed up some things half way thru the year so there are 2 models. (no change is body style.) I have had both. The early 2004 is a great model and the body styles are the same. The difference is the newer 2004 has some cosmetic upgrades and takes synthetic oil and tranny fluid where as the older can use the less expensive fluids. GREAT CARS!"

"After owning this car less than a year I've replaced Engine Transmission And literally everything in between. Soft leather is ruined from pervious owner. VERY expensive to have worked on, special tools and mechanical knowledge to do simple tasks. Need a special tool to change the oil filter and other simple things. Finding parts is ridiculous, either special order of very expensive."

"Not kidding when I say we get 34-36 miles per gallon on the Highway. If I'm going on a slower two lane behind a semi, we get 42. At first, I thought the computer was off, so I've been using gas fill-ups(89 octane or better) and mileage to calculate. Spunky little motor, and good handling too."
