Car is stalling out while driving down the road engine light came on when put on machine error given is fuel pressure. The fuel pressure was checked and was at correct pressure for the car. I have replaced fuel censer and car ran fine for 2 days then same issue with same error the fuel controller has a corroded pen I tried to call Volvo they are telling me there is nothing they can do when I can clearly see the year make and model have had a recall for the exact issue that I am having with this car. The recall number in your system is 08V033000 I normally would just get the car fixed but this is a major issue it seems the location of the controller needs to be moved to prevent this from happening again. This is a car my 16 year old daughter drives so you can understand my concern with vovlo not wanting to correct this

I got new car in Nov 2003 of the year 2004 model. It feels like one has to put foot on brakes all the way to apply. It is progressively getting worse. In Dec 2005, while existing from highway we meet an accident as it did not stop where it was suppose to stop. Volvo dealer top the break fluid during maintenance. But did not solve the problem. We got new brake pads from Volvo dealer and changed along with brake discs in 2009. But, it did not solve the problem. In the morning, it will not break unless one has to put foot on pedal few times. Again in 2015 we got brake pads from other auto part shop of high quality but it does not solve the problem. In addition, I smell gas but could not locate any leak of fuel. Also, steering wheel is very hard and we took to Volvo few times but it is the same.
