An old car but a working car.

2005 Volvo S40

The car is older so it requires more maintenance as oppose to a newer vehicle. The car itself has a lot of material problems, such as a constant issue of water somehow getting into the car and flooding only one side. The driver's seat has recently locked in place, thank goodness it was to my alignment. But the car still does its job by getting from place to place. The car itself is comfortable and during the summer I used it to drive back and forth between north jersey and Philadelphia 3 days a week, so it still is reliable,

What a fun and safe little car!

2005 Volvo S40 2.5L Turbo AWD Auto w/Sunroof

Have has the usual wear and tear issues with the car, it is over 10 years old at this point. I ended up getting rear ended in this same make and model (the car was totaled) but I barely had any whiplash and there was no damage to the inside of the car whatsoever. I ended up buying the exact same year, make and model and have been driving it since 2014. Absolutely love it. Great get-up-and-go, very safe, and fun to drive.

Old Volvo falling apart but still driving

2005 Volvo S40 2.4L Auto

I bought my Volvo used last year. Since then it's had many problems. The interior wasn't in good condition but the side of the seat actually fell apart and the lights on the ceiling literally fell out of the ceiling. I had multiple issues with the car mechanics itself as well. It does have over four hundred thousand miles on it though so it's still driving which is good.
