Before that, I drove a 99 Volvo S70 and it was basically the same. Replaced a bulb once, replaced the battery once (because the battery that came with the car when they sold it to us was a AAA battery that was one size too small for the car). Even after I had a car accident with it, outside of getting the radiator damage from the accident fixed, there was really nothing to be done about it. I still haven't had the vanity damage repaired but the car functions just fine, same as before.
