If I recall right, VVT is Variable Valve Timing and there was an ECM update/reprogram for it. If they didn't mention it when you got the struts done then yours probably had it done already (it was before the strut recall). I actually haven't got around to getting the struts done yet.What's the VVT recall? I had the rear hatch struts recall done. Interestingly enough, the metal stands that the struts attach to are pretty rusted. I thought they'd replace those, but nope.
