Volvo S40 and V50 (P1) 2004-2012
Many reports of unreliability due to electrical issues, and some reports of automatic transmission problems.
All engines have a timing belt which need regular replacement, although Volvo interval is longer than most. Depending on engine, the replacement interval is either 190,000 km or 240,000 km, or every ten years.
Some early Australian models came with a full size spare but later models came with a space-saver.
