This is not a horrible car. I choose it for its safety and it being economical. But its not that comfortable, low on the ground, no pickup and very loud. Though I think it's a cute car that's solid.
Sexy meets Comfort

I absolutely love my Volvo S40!
Ok, it takes way more money to fill up the tank then my little Honda Civic ever did and I average about 21-22 miles to the gallon around town and 26 HWY.
But driving it is easy. I feel safe driving around LA, and it even makes the bumpy LA freeway feel smooth and quiet. The handling is a breeze, and she has pep. I love the style too.
The only drawback is the seat adjustments. It is all manual. But that is a small issue.
Overall, I am super happy and confident that I made the right choice. If you are looking for something with a smooth ride and a great safety record then this is your car :)

I'm pleased with my car. A good ride, good gas mileage and performs well.
