Keep a 2nd car (Japanese) as a backup

1999 Volvo S80 T6 Turbo 4dr Sedan


My S80 was/is a fun car to drive. Hands down it's one of the better vehicles to drive and responds well to tight turns, sudden accelerations, etc. However, it has been very unreliable. I've spent a small fortune trying to keep this car alive and it has only 87k miles on it. Small niggles like oil leaks cost upwards of $500 to fix. The upper engine mount has broken thrice in 4 years. The emmissions error message kept coming on till I replaced the abs module. And now I've a transmission error message which has been diagnosed as an electrical issue in the comntrol module but it cant be repaired and the whole transmission needs to be replaced ($5k).. Ouch ! Save the money and buy a Lexus or Acura
