We own an S40 and I seriously looked at a Golf and Jetta 1.8T. The Volvo is way more upscale when loaded, but also far more expensive.

The Jetta with sport suspension drives better, has an available manual transmission and only loses an inch or two in rear seat room. However, the Jetta has such a horrible resale value that the cars lease for approximately the same monthly payment.

All in all, we are not impressed with the ergonomics of the 2000 V40, and the interior of on the standard car just doesn't compare to the Jetta. Fortunately we picked up a great lease rate on a completely loaded Silver S40 that has all the bells and whistles, plus the nice wood trim.


p.s. The dealer just tried to give me my car back with a non-sport steering wheel. Ugh! These people are clueless - my steering wheel was thicker, and has nice padding at 8 and 4 - what were they thinking!?!?!
