Volvo S80 loves Mechanic more than me!

2000 Volvo S80 2.9 4dr Sedan
Review
This is my first and last Volvo, I have driven it 60k miles. It's comfortable and attractive to look at, but gee, I am disappointed in the build and mechanical quality. After all the front suspension work (recall) the car scares me on the highway. I hate the surge when the AC switches on and off, the door locks sound like a sick power drill, and the car rattles like an 80's American car. I live with it all, but for $35K I expected a lot more! Since the warranty ended it has cost me 3K to keep up with it. I've tried to trade it but dealers price it way below trade in value and then run away - they don't want it in thier used inventory either!
Favorite Features
Leather interior is nice. Power seats memory works great. Like the trunk size, very attractive body lines.
Suggested Improvements
Steering is loose. Very easy to lock your keys in an S80 - keep an extra key handy. Get to know an independent Volvo mechanic - the dealer takes forever to get the job done and has a higher hourly rate than the BMW or Benz dealership.
