The transmission blew once without any warning. The flange in the mechanism between the engine and the clutch blew all its remaining rivets. Poor design as the entire flange had to be replaced. This is expensive and takes a lot of time.
The other problem that happens frequently is that the trunk gets locked with the remote and doesn't unlock anymore. This is very problematic for travelling as the luggage has to be recovered through the back seat.
Does anyone have an email address for feedback to and solution/suggestion from Volvo ?.

1997 Volvo S40 T4 1.9 Turbo
An strange noise from the rear axle.
Engine regulation light occaisonally comes on.
No other problems so far (25000km).
The traction check (DSA) is useless in the wet, the regulation intervenes much too late. On dry roads the traction is surprising good.
All in all, exactly the vehicle I wanted.
