Volvo S40 Accessories & Parts

The first generation Volvo compact executive cars arrived in 1995, which were first stated as S4/F4 series, but then renamed to S40 (sedan) and V40 (5-door station wagon) due to Audi reservation of the “S4” name and Ferrari's F40. Volvo S40 was the first one to represent new design direction with softer lines. It is also the lowest emitting car in its class. The model's predecessor is Volvo 440, a 5-door hatchback. The 40 Series cars were equipped with 1,9T engine and 5 Speed automatic transmission. Based on the same platform as Mitsubishi Carisma, the 40 Series cars were updated in 2001. Its turbocharged engine has an output of 162 horsepower at 5,100 revolutions per minute and a maximum torque of 177 foot-pounds at 1,800 to 4,800 rpm.

For its first generation, Volvo S40 presented a compact package, measuring in with a wheelbase of 8 feet, 9 inches and overall length of 14 feet, 10 inches. Volvo S40 and Volvo V40 boast an absolutely new standard for medium-segment cars, which is side airbags. Also significant changes were made, which are added safety features, larger brake discs, thoroughly developed engine management, updated front suspension and steering, improved rear suspension, larger tires and increased track width. As for safety factor, the model is actually the safest in its class. The anti-spin system, DSA (Dynamic Stability Assistance) provides the outstanding driving safety. Automatic climate control and keyless entry, leather seats, and AM/FM radio were standard for this model.

The second generation Volvo S40 premiered at Frankfurt Motor Show in 2003 and it featured modernly and elegantly styled Volvo parts. It quickly made an impression, when it went on sale in 2004. 19,419 units were sold during the first year the updated model arrived. Replacing two old Volvos, S40 and V50 are based on the Volvo P1 platform. The new model has a longer wheelbase than the previous one for a smoother ride. The new model features automatic, front-wheel drive T5 (base) and R-Design trims. In 2008 the S40 was again refreshed. Audio systems were refreshed, storage space was increased and the new Emergency Brake Lights safety feature appeared. New Volvo S40 wouldn't be a Volvo without improvements on safety factor, such as BLIS (Blind Spot Information System). The Interior Air Quality System keeps the interior climate clean and healthy.

The S40 unveils a heaping dose of compact excitement to the Volvo name, helping establish the brand as a figure in a segment it has long strayed away from. The S40 has impressed upon its arrival, thanks to an elevated form of style that many did not see coming. Featuring auto parts with the articulate design and seductive shape, the S40 has all of the presence of a show-stopper. Sure, it has Volvo's signature safety reinforcements and premium performance, and it even hints at luxury with its comfy interior and tech-advanced dash. But overall, it's a fashionably conscious model with lots of fans.

2003 Volvo S40 | Posted by Richard | (Apex, NC)

I just put these rotors on my daughter's S40. Why? I put Zimmermann rotors on my wife's S70 back in 2005 with 56,000 miles on it. Yes, the OEM Volvo rotors were shot! It is now 2015, my wife now has 210,000 miles on her S70, and the 2005 rotors are still going strong with 154,000 miles on them. I have never had to turn them. I have been running PBR Metal Master pads with them. What a great braking combo these make. Unfortunately, I do not believe you can get Metal Master pads any longer. I matched up the new Zimmermann rotors on my daughter's S40 with EBC "Red Stuff" ceramic pads. After the initial seating/break-in, they seem to be working great together. I have used the "Green Stuff" pads on my Isuzu Rodeo and have had great results, so I anticipate similar results with the red ones. Just a bit more history. Before the Zimmermann's, I tried Power Slot rotors on the S40. The rear rotors are fine, but the front rotors were a nightmare. After turning them a half dozen times, they went in the recycle bin.
