Well, thanks to the kind people of this board (and other similar) my wife and I were persuaded to purchase a 2002 Volvo S40 with most of the bells and whistles.<P>What I was shocked about is that the deals Volvo and the dealership offered. Our 2002 has the premium plus package and the cold package, with a sticker price of $28,350. We purchased the car for $22,350 + tax -- an amazing $6000 off of sticker.<P>No other car we tested could match up with the S40, especially at that price.<P>I'm happy to consider myself a Volvo owner -- and thanks for all of your posts that helped us make the decision!

That is a phenomenal deal. I've heard of discounts on leftovers, but that's in a different ballpark.<P>Volvo's sales the last few months have been crappy, so maybe they're getting down and dirty to get the numbers up.<P>That said, welcome and congrats on the new car. I hope you enjoy it immensely.

I too purchased this weekend!<BR>I got similar deals (premium plus, cold weather, metallic paint) less than $23,000 but some of that was due to the fact that I am a Ford Employee in Detroit. Sound like you got a great deal.

I'm not sure why we received such a great price on the S40. The dealer had advertised "up to $6000 off of MSRP" in the local newspaper, so that's what we offered and that's what they accepted. <P>The price was almost $1500 less than what we could have gotten from carsdirect.com and nearly $2000 less than the price we were quoted from a Volvo dealership in a neighboring city.<P>I will post pics soon -- until then, a couple of questions:<P>(1) Are there any special care hints anyone has for the early miles on the S40?<P>(2) Are there any resources on-line (or elsewhere) that goes beyond the manufacturer's documentation on the care and upkeep of the S40?<P>Thanks again!<P>Darryl

Welcome to the both of you! I'm not sure which you'll like more -- poking around here at Swedespeed or sitting in the driver's seat of your brand new S40! Ha ha. Okay, I know which one you'll like more, but the folks here are great, nonetheless. Welcome, and enjoy your new car!<p>[This message has been edited by Lisa62 (edited 07-09-2002).]

hi all! Greetings from Singapore! This is my very first post here. Just took delivery of my S40 2 weeks ago. Still very excited! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><BR>You won't believe how much MORE expensive it's to buy a car over here. I paid S$113,000 (that works out about US$65,000) for a 1.8L Sports Edition. I will have to pay about another US$1100 for road tax and insurance. Nevetheless, I'm a VERY Happy Volvo owner. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">

A $1,631 price reduction from Volvo of the Premium Plus package along with a $2,400 cash-back to the Retailers. That is more than $4,000 that you would have paid back in early Spring!<P>Enjoy it and stick around!<P><BR>Yannis<BR><P>
