2001 Volvo V40 SE 1.9T from North America
I'd buy another one in a minute
It's a red vehicle and the paint is a problem, as it looks oxidized a week after a wax; I just don't do it anymore.
I have driven this car 300 mile s a week for a year and a half. 34,000 miles and aside from oil changes, tire rotations a set of headlight bulbs and some performance mods, all I've had to do is a rear brake change. The paint on mine is red and yes, it looks very oxidized and had this happened after a year or two if I had been a new buyer, I'd complain, but I knew the paint issue going in. This has been a very reliable, problem-free, fun-to-drive vehicle. A sport exhaust, K&N filter, gas shocks and a fat anti-sway bar have made this car a great cruiser and fun to play with the beemers.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
