$Love it But Leave It

I love this car. Comfortable, safe, reliable and can get me anywhere. My $5000 purchase of a used car has probably now cost me upwards of $10,000 including repairs. I've owned it for 5 years. Not what i was looking for in purchasing a used vehicle. It's been one thing after another- engine mounts, locks, windows, power steering leak, rear drive shaft now the air pump system. This is not a used vehicle you want to buy if you are not willing to put a lot of $$$ into it. Going back I probably would have settled for something cheaper to repair.
Comfort & Safety.
Small features should not have worn out yet- I know Chrysler owners who have older cars with working parts and my Volvo doesn't.
