S80 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,000 miles
(your website doesn't list Volvo S-80 types) we have repeatedly received bulb failure indicator(I believe its the brake light. Its been repaired /replaced 3 times in the 3 years we've had the car. Sometimes its intermittent. Volvo says this is common. If so, why not a recall? (no other car I've owned has frequent brake light failure).
