If it is a GDI model with the mitsibushi lean burn engine listen for any rev variation at tickover, if it does this its not generally a problem, though it ca occasionally stall at the lights, but it means the valves need decoking. as the fuel is injected directly into the cylinders rather than through a carb or mixed with air prior to injecting you cant cure it in the conventional way with a fuel injection cleaner / redex type product, it can only be done with a head removal and manual cleaning which can cost a fair bit, if its a non GDI engine its not a problem. other than that I am on my second V40 (10th volvo) and quite happy with the cars generally.
