Default s80 t6

when i bought my 2001 t6 used, i had some warrranty with it, and this is what happened:
At about 49,000 miles it started happening:

-Needed new trunk panels, old ones were very loose.
-Oil pump had to be resealed
-both the turbos in my car were leaking so those had to be resealed
-gave me 3 new struts(replaced on 2 different ocasions)
-the mass flow air sensor had to be fixed or replaced
-they have looked at the suspension about 4-5 times and can not find the noise im hearing.
-my steering wheel makes a creeking noise and some other funny noises- there answer was wd40--this didnt help have to go back.
-a bulb blew out

now when i bought the car, didnt they check for these things? I mean they covered this all until my last visit which was 1 week later where i had to pay 100$, which made me upset becuase i havnt had a month without a problem. Last problem was a SRS airbag service urgent message.....

I'm beginigng to think this is a Lemon car???? anyone concur?

If the Dealer sold it to you they only do a safety inspection.

The cannot check the entire car and replace all the parts that are borderline.

Volvo will not pay for it and sometimes punishes the Dealers for doing it.
