The Volvo S40/V40 was launched in May 1996. At its launch, the S40 saloon and V40 estate were available with either 1.8- or 2.0-litre petrol engines, with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic. In early 1997, a 1.6-litre engine was introduced, initially in Saloon models only. Towards the end of 1997, two turbocharged petrol engines were also introduced, then in early 1999 the first diesel models were added. The range received a major facelift in May 2000, then a further facelift in April 2002 resulted in a new-look Volvo radiator grille and other minor changes. The S40/V40 should prove reliable and economical. The engine compartment is well-designed, and most of the items requiring frequent attention are easily accessible. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Volvo repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Volvo S40/V40 repair manual makes the ideal companion when you’re undertaking maintenance or repairs on your car.
