Used Volvo S40 2004 – Buyer’s Guide

Why buy a Used Volvo S40?

The Focus based S40 is a very good junior executive car that makes real sense when compared to rivals such as the BMW 3 Series. A very refined car with a superbly light and unique interior, the S40 comes highly recommended.

The S40 has a great range of Ford derived engines and rides fantastically. It's handling is a weak spot but that is its only criticism.

Which is the best used Volvo S40?

Huge savings (up to £1000 on average) are to be made on petrol S40s. The 1.8 makes real sense as this is a very economical engine - tough and cheaper to insure than the 2.0 diesel. Also the average mileage on these cars is likely to be much lower.

We would recommend S or SE spec on the Volvo S40. Sport trim will set you back £300 and the big wheels and sport suspension do the ride no favours.


Fault Checks for the Volvo S40

What should I aim to pay for an Volvo S40?

A 3 year old 1.8 petrol in SE trim will cost £9000. You will pay £1000 to £1200 more for a 2.0 diesel.

The best time to buy is either nearly new (but sell at two and a half years) or at 3 years old when the first MOT is due year.

Volvo S40 Prices & Depreciation – Graph - Fuel differences

Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Volvo S40 you would aim to buy a 7 year old and you can keep it for some time before needing to worry about a big drop in value.

Diesel Volvo S40 cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.

Diesel Volvo S40 cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.

Petrol Volvo S40 cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
