I just got my car back and remember I owe y'all a picture of the most boring Volvo ever.

My 00 S40, in all its boring glory!


First-gen S40 buddy. My 03 was my gateway drug into the world of Volvo - fiancee still drives it a couple times a week.

I always wondered if, being a NEDcar/Mitsubishi mashup, people didn't consider it a "real" Volvo, but it's been dead reliable, with close to 250k on the clock and 17 years of pretty much making it look after itself.

Yeah, it's definitely a departure from the blocky beasts I've driven before. But thanks to this thread, I realized the blocky Volvos would have been more work than I was wanting to deal with. Every one I drove in my price range had some severe issues.

I will still dream of having a 87 740 GLE again someday. Maybe I'll marry a mechanic?

My v70 is making some front end noise. Only sometimes after a bump when coasting, goes away when I press gas or brake. It's like a repeated thudding.

Engine mounts.

Just looked up the vacuum motor mounts and that's almost exactly what it sounded like. I drove the car a bit today and it didn't do it at all, is that weird? Maybe a cracked line or a crack in the mount that leaks under certain conditions.

I had this with my XC70 and it was a bad ignition coil. I got a check engine light shortly afterwards
