Hi Veronica,

The S40 is pretty solid, and that 1.8-litre engine is more or less unburstable, but there are common problems with the ignition and central locking systems, and on a car that old you’ll need to check for a full service history, and have a good, long inspection to look for signs of excessive wear and tear.
