Yup exactly - if you guys actually own a S40 you'll realize that most of the stuff is inaccessible unless you're somewhat of a mechanic (which I'm not).
Also - 8 repairs... don't you guys think that is somewhat excessive?
Well it depends, some people can live with that, others can't. It's really up to you. If you're not happy with the car at the end of the day, then you have to switch. I'd be upset if I were in your situation too. For the most part, they're annoyances- the car will run with a wacky climate control or no side indicator on the mirror. It's not fun, but the car will get you to where you want to go. The only two problems I'd be concerned about are the steering failure and the air bag problem. I'd give it another chance- if the car doesn't run or poses a safety hazard, I'd take the financial hit and switch cars.
But you do have to realize that it still is somewhat of a new car, a European car, so you'll have more problems. Hopefully you won't have anymore problems.
