Volvo S40 T5

So I'm thinking bout getting a volvo s40 T5 for my next car, and I was looking for some forums and I came across one VERY similiar to this forum. I believe it even had some of the same members. However, it was no where near as active or helpful as this one.

Does any one know anything about these cars?

THANKS!

That they're EXCELLENT!
The T5 has no turbo lag, the interior is so simplistic and the materials are of high quailty, if you get the optional surround sound, the Audio will be amazing.
The only thing I wished for was more interior storage but the big glovebox, and the storage behind the center stack was enough for me.
Get a new one though.

I took an S40 our for a test drive one bored Saturday... it was the 5sp, black w/ tan leather interior... It was lots of fun... I didn't expect a Volvo to be fun

Re: Volvo S40 T5

All these cars are so nice, but for $29,000, I could go get a Ford Mustang GT with 300 horses.

I mean no hard feelings for what I post on this website. Anything I type/write/post/say on this forum is only that of general debate and discussion. I am not biased toward anyone or anything. I am neutral in everything I do on this website. Only those facts that are presented to me sway my thought process and siding of each discussion topic that I post about.

Re: Volvo S40 T5

The Mustang has a gas guzzling V8, awful interior, it's a 2 door, among other downfalls.

You can get a used S40 (2004.5) for around 17K.

I had a red one with 37K miles on it with no problems, just a rattle.
