There is or was no failure or crash, but what it sounds like there might be one on the recall of my Volvo V70 station wagon 2002 because of a possible malfunctioning software in the electronic throttle system. The recall notice came from Volvo cars of North America, llc. I need some more information on this to see just how urgent and serious I should take priority to get my car in to see a Volvo service center to get it fixed, because this could be just a way of getting a one half hour labor charge out of people if my car does not contain the recall problem.
