2006 Volvo S80 Reviews

We have a 2006 S80 purchased new. This S80 is our third Volvo in the past 30 years. Doubt we will buy another. Currently has 110K on it. First 60k was basically trouble free. Now seems to be one thing after another and product protected. Good car, but a constant maintenance event. Significant problems with head lights and suspension sytem. Constantly fixing something like fuel door, dimmer switch, etc. Not sure all this is worth the hassle for the price and since we live 50 miles from the nearest Volvo shop.
