I just bought a 1998 Volvo V40 on ebay! I'm going to collect it next week! Someone please tell me what to look for in terms of faults etc!!!

I'm sooo excited! :D

I've always liked the S/V40s, and I've had 3 Ss in the past. This one's supposed to be for keeps for at least 50000 miles, so I think I can finally settle down! I've jumped from car to car to car in the last 2 and a half years - 3 S40s and like 20 Audi 80s and 100s! But I'm done! I just want a car that works, and I cant afford a decent Audi, so this was the obvious choice! When I had my first S, all I had to do was gas and drive! It never even hiccuped!

Anyway, thanks for listening to me rant! :D I'll keep you posted on how my ownership pans out. Please post posts to let me know what to look for! Thank you!!

Please click the pic to see the ebay advert, and vote in the poll above to let me know what you think of the buy....

I love S40s, V40s & Audis

Looks good from here. My mom had one like that, but a few years newer. Nice car. I love the look/styling. I'm just a bit too tall for them or I'd probably own one.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.
