1998 Volvo V70 XC 2.4L turbo from North America
The only thing I have replaced on my V70 XC in the last 400, 00 are:
Rear shocks (used: 200.00 cad).
Regular brake maintenance every 60 to 100 thousand km.
Timing belt (40.00 cad, installed myself).
Oil changes every 4000 km.
ABS module (I resoldered the board and reinstalled, price $0).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

You want to say you have been driving this car for 400000kms only with these repairs? I'm sorry, I wish it was true, but there is no vehicle on planet Earth that will be this trouble free. A Volvo with 400000 will have tons of issues including sensors, many suspension components, engine mounts, and the list is long.

I can believe it, I recently sold a 2005 Volvo V70 with 298,000 MILES and it was still going strong. Anyway, normal people don't class wear and tear items as problems. The fact this Volvo has been good and not needed anything outside of normal maintenance is a good score. I'm sure if it were a Toyota, people would be saying how great they are, but because it's a Volvo, someone has to come on and 'rubbish' it. Good on the original reviewer. If you look after a car, they usually look after you.
