Driver seat back instability S70

Driver seat in my '99 S70 has developed a tendency to suddenly collapse several notches to the rear. Doesn't go all the way down, but raises some concern re safety of the seat in a rear-end collision situation (been rear-ended twice before this vehicle, with a lot of resulting neck surgery--the anti-whiplash seat was the main reason for purchase of this vehicle).
Any similar experiences out there?
Any suggestions re diagnosis and repair?
Any known recalls or NTSB inquiries about this or a related problem?
Thanks, all.
