I purchased vehicle 8 months ago I now have problems with the front and back suspension. The air turns on its own, the axle has broken, the sunroof opens when it wants to open, check engine light has turned on along with maintenance light, my doors will unlock themselves when I lock them and the alarm will engage, the left window does not work, sometimes I cant unlock the doors have to unlock with my hand. My cruise control does not work, the battery stops working often, the inside lights work sometimes. It is running terrible, idle up and down I know all has something to do with recall please help!

2001 Volvo S80 series developed problems with the steering and the braking system.** answer required***. while exiting a parking lot, the vehicle ceased to operate. The vehicle towed and the consumer was assured the problem had been resolved, however 8 months later the incident happened again. The consumer had several electrical repairs done on the vehicle, such as the interior lights, the power windows, the battery was defective which had to be replaced twice, the alarm would go off for no reason, the head light bulbs and tail light bulbs were replaced. The key would not turn in the ignition, the engine light illuminated, there was a front suspension noise when going over bumps. There was a power steering leak due to a loose hose clamp. The parking brake needed to be adjusted, it did not hold on an incline.
