There was already a thread about Volvo sales, but this question is specifically about the S40. This car was brand new; completely redesigned in 2004 as a 2004.5 model, yet sales are already beginning to drop off. Typically, I would think that a new model would peak at about 2-4 years in its lifecycle before dropping. The S60, for example, has been around longer and sales are still going up, albeit ever so slightly. Is there something about the S40 that is turning buyers away? Thoughts? I really like this car, but wonder about its future.
