What do you guys think of the Volvo S40? I know it's not comparable to the BMW but I just want to get your opinion on this car?

How does the car drive/handle?
How is the maintenance?
Does Volvo have a 3 year maintenace like the BMW?

Our 1990 Volvo 740 GL was a good car. Very low maintenance. I don't know much about the new S series. Not many people buy them. S80s are a good deal. They depreciate half of their value in 3 years. 268 HP with twin turbo.

lets just say.... You'll never pull a dead body out of a Volvo wreck... and if its European, its decent all around, IF not great!

i had 1994 850 Turbo last year and i loved it. I think Volvo is very close to BMW.

honestly i own an old volvo 240 and to tell you the truth the "S" series are beutiful car with plenty or horses under the hood. as well as they are damn good looking yet bmw is still ahead of the game due to the fact of rear wheel drive.

All volvo's are :puke:

For those of us who can afford a Z4, we'll take that into mind...

I personally think they look pretty good.

Reliability is supposed to be on par with previous volvo reliability, and it's a tank, don't ever forget that. They're extremely good cars for the price I think, not the kind of car I want at this point but if I had family of any sort I'd probably buy one *th-up*
