Too much work for a new car
I have had nothing but problems with my Volvo S40. After owning it less than a year, I have had to replace the 2 front headlights, and one of the taillights. More seriously, it has been in the shop twice to have the rotors replaced. Just recently, it had to be taken in to have the CV boot completely replaced, as well as the linkage and other pertinent parts on the front, passenger side wheel. 3 days after I got it back from the dealer after the CV boot work, the brake warning light came on and I had to add brake fluid to the car (something the dealer should have checked while it was there, in my opinion).
I bought a Volvo based on its safe and reliable reputation. I will not buy another one. Maybe the old ones were reliable, but these new ones sure aren't.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
