      You have to be kidding. Why is he driving his car home. Why not do it during business hours. When finished, he parks the car in the repair shop

      So is Volvo addressing this issue at time of service or waiting until January 4, 2020 to take action?

      Right. Like I said, we check for open recalls on all cars that come in. I've seen a few with this showing up as open. But parts information is not available yet so there isn't anything we can do.

      Nothing fishy about the fuel filter. About $60 for the part and a half hour labor. I'd bet they are well above $150/hr in Chicago.

      I've seen a few cars already with this recall listed as open, so I believe Volvo's system is up to date. Parts are not available yet though.

      Sounds like time doesn't matter, just miles according to Tech. So if it takes 4 years to hit 10k just reset until you hit 10k.

      Yes, tires do need to match for CPO. But like Matt said, it isn't as huge of a deal as it is being made to be.
