Dont judge a book by it cover

2006 Volvo V50 2.4i 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5A)
The car looks great and is fun to drive, but I was spoiled by our Volkswagen Jetta in the reliability department. The Volvo V 50 has required work since we bought it- wiring harness issues, sun roof leak that we learned will cannot be fully rectified, gas cap issues-would not pass inspection, battery issues, anti- theft-immobilizer issues. The inconvenience is one thing, but now that it is out of warranty, I worry it is going to cost us a great deal to keep it on the road. This will be the first and last Volvo for us.
Appearance and drive.
Perhaps less bells and whistles electronic wise; perhaps simpler is better in this case. Certainly Volvo needs to improve the reliability of the electrical and electronic systems.
