1999 Volvo V40 1.9TD from UK and Ireland
Classy small estate
Gearbox replaced at 80,000.
Every 10-20,000 miles gear selector bus replaced due to refusal to engage 1st and 2nd gears.
Drivers seat is now giving me back ache because it as sagged.
Generally a very nice car. I think it looks beautiful. Not been a troublesome car, a bit scary at post motorway speeds, but settles down at about 100/105mph then it sits down, and will all day if I had the bottle to!
Have to let her go mid march (end of lease contract) The only reason I cannot have another one is because I need a bigger boot for work and growing family.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
