I bought my 2008 Volvo S40 2.4i a couple months ago, and I have be thuroughly pleased with it ever since. The things I find the most impressive about the car are things I wasn't even necesarily interested in when looking at various vehicles. The driver instrument panel and location of the controls on the center console are simplistic yet intuitive - there is a very perfect balance between design and functionality, and the Volvo engineers have reached near perfection with this one. The car looks fantastic, and there is no doubt in my mind that I am about as safe as I could be in a car while driving ... it also helps that it is appealing to the eyes as well. The only reservation I have about the car is that the acceleration could be a little peppier, but it still has a considerable amount of power for its class. It is also much cheaper than most competing luxury sedans like the BMW 500 series. All around it is just a great car to own and drive.
I purchased a 2006 S40 2.5T AWD sedan. So far the vehicle has been a wonderful purchase. Other than a Volvo recall to fix the radio interference problem, I haven't had a moment's trouble. Everyone from the salesperson to the service advisor has been a pleasure to work with. Overall, I would say that the model I purchased compares favorably to the BMW 3-Series. While not as flashy or quick, the car looks nice traveling down the road and costs $$$ less doing so.
After searching for several months for what I wanted in a car - I finally found it in my Volvo S40. It's stylish, comfortable, and classy without sending my budget into a tailspin. Good fuel economy also.
