1: This is in the wrong forum
2: You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about!
A 2002 V40 has a MITSUBISHI
platform not a Focus.
The 04.5 is built on the P1 platform, not an old 02.
3: An 02 V40 is, well not the best car on the planet. It doesn't have any Volvo driving dynamics.
The only thing that's common with a V70 is the radio and the to some extent the seats.I would recommend ANY year V70 over that POS
and while I'm at it, to the OP that said a comment about the Ford, that platform may be one of the BEST platform ever made.
Supports the Euro Focus, one the better handling cars, the Mazda 3 and 6, also very good handling cars ( and the Volvo, also the best handling Volvo built to date, very solid little cars).Unfortunately the 02 V40 is none of the above, pass and buy a REAL Volvo
