Lovely to drive but unreliable

I bought this car used in 2019 from a Volvo main dealer with 22k on the clock. It drives fantastically and is the most comfortable car I have ever owned. My first year of ownership (while it was under warranty) was trouble free apart from one of the doors needing fixing as it refused to open. Fast forward to 2021, the car now has 51k on the clock and is constantly in and out of the dealer for repairs. Firstly the car suffered a costly oil leak which could only be repaired by removing and replacing the cam belt. Next came the over heating warning, which turned out to be a an electrical fault. This issue took 6 visits to the dealer to resolve at a cost of thousands of pounds and amongst other things required a replacement ECU. It has also had the control arms replaced as they failed causing a monumental squeak when driving.

The most recent problem has been the infotainment system which has suffered the black screen of death. This means I have no screen, climate control, Bluetooth or sat nav. The electric mirrors have also gone haywire. I am currently awaiting diagnosis of this issue, however am fully expecting it to be another costly repair.

I had planned to keep this car long term, however I have lost all faith in the vehicle and will be getting rid of it as soon as my new car arrives in a few months. This has been the least reliable car I have ever owned.
