1999 Volvo V40 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Quite impressed for an old mans car!!!
Inter cooler pipe blown off while speeding along the motorway (severe loss of power!)
Intermittent problem with the accelerator sticking which has gone on for about a year.
Turbo intake pipe split.
Heavy knocking from the front suspension.
Driver's side front window slow in operation.
Two sets of brake pads fitted.
Turbo engine makes for a fun take off, but needs DSA in the wet to stop the wheels from spinning.
As speed increases the handling is a bit scary.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
