    This car has only been used for highway trips. Mostly in between the inland empire and Morgan Hill, Ca. I have another truck that I drive around town, plus a company car. The car gets a consistent 29-31mpg on the highway. In fact, I have most of the gas recorded in my maintenance book. The car is still under warranty until 30,000 miles, and has maintenance paid for until them also. Currently, the car has a bit under 26,000 miles on it.

    As far as damage to the car, there is a door ding on the drivers 1/4 panel, and there is a scratch on the hood from where a coke can flew up and hit the car on 101.

    Here is a link to the car and driver review of the car: http://www.caranddriver.com/previews/7702/volvo-s40.html . Also don’t be fooled by their review of the 2.4i automatic. It’s a slug. The 5 speed really makes this car move. Boy is it fun to drive!!
