What used Volvo V40 estate will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Volvo V40 estate?
The petrol engines can run to 12,000 miles or a year - whichever comes first - before needing attention. The diesels operate to a slightly shorter time span, requiring a service every 10,000 miles.
That's not too bad and, if you take your V40 to a Volvo dealer, the hourly rates shouldn't work out more expensive than having, say, a Focus worked on by a Ford dealer. Independent Volvo specialists tend to be pricier than the class average, though.
