Volvo gas door - terrible design

I have a 2008 Volvo V70 wagon (my 4th). Filling up my tank, I bumped the gas door and it fell on the ground. Turns out the gas door has a plate that covers it. A small bump and it comes off, the snaps break and it costs @$285 (they have to paint it) to replace it.



This is ridiculous. Anyone else had this problem? I can’t be alone.
