History of Volvo S40
The Volvo S40 is a small family car that was in production between the years of 1995 and 2012. There were two generations of the S40, both of which were available in saloon and estate body types, offering buyers the choice of numerous petrol and diesel engines. The S40 was generally regarded as a reliable vehicle that offered good value and equipment. The Volvo S40 is known to be a reliable vehicle. In fact, Warranty Direct ranks it first out of a list of 25 family cars, with a reliability index score of 25, which is great in comparison to last place''s 201. This is based on a number of factors, such as the number of times it fails, the costs of repair and average time spent off road due to repairs. Auto Express describes the Volvo S40 as ''a family hatch-sized car with premium saloon ambitions''. They admire the S40 for its good value, equipment levels and driving position. However, they criticise its ''poor legroom, vague steering and dull styling''. What Car? describes it as a ''handsome looking saloon'' that is ''beautifully finished inside and out''. They do however mention that the boot and rear seats aren''t particularly spacious, and although it''s fun to drive they say it can be too firm.
