Great car for first 120k, but now......?

Review
Getting some anxieties about upcoming costs. Volvo shops are VERY expensive. Are they better than local guy? I don't know. So far we had to do only the normal maintenance, but we now also have the loose sway bars, rusting brakes, the tailgate interior loose and the "check engine" light on of which the first repair did not fix it..... Is it falling apart? Selling makes no sense. Trade-in values are horribly low. So from feeling like we were driving the best car of the world, we now are in sticker shock looking at rising repair costs and no good alternative.... A lube job to a squeaking skylight would require its removal @ several hundreds....
Favorite Features
Drives well, great ABS, quality body, good mileage, handles well, not noisy.
Suggested Improvements
Too late for that. Volvo has already decided to become more of a luxury brand. They also no longer sell manual transmission, so no more Volvo for us.
