PLACED MY VEHICLE IN REVERSE TO PULL BACK OUT OF MY GARAGE & MY CAR ACCELERATED OUT OF CONTROL. I WAS FORCED INTO A PARKING SIGN THAT SCRATCHED AND DENTED MY LEFT REAR BUMPER. IN THE LAST 2 1/2 MONTHS RELATED PROBLEMS CONTINUE WHERE MY CAR SURGES & ALSO EXPERIENCES SUDDEN & UNEXPECTED REDUCED PERFORMANCE. WHEN I ACCELERATE MY CAR FEELS LIKE IT IS STUCK IN GEAR & WON'T RESPOND. IT IS A SAFETY HAZARD!! AGAIN!!! THIS DUPLICATES THE SAME ELECTRONIC THROTTLE MODULE PROBLEM I HAD IN AUGUST OF 2005. AFTER TAKING MY CAR IN 4 TIMES (NOT KNOWING WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS), IT WAS FINALLY DETERMINED IT IS THE ETM AGAIN. VOLVO PERFORMED A COMPUTERIZED UPGRADE ON THE ETM & THEN IT WAS FINALLY RECALLED IN JANUARY OF 2006. IT IS ANOTHER SAFETY HAZARD READY TO HAPPEN. VOLVO SHOULD HAVE IN THE BEGINNING & SHOULD AT THIS TIME BE MADE TO REPLACE THE FAULTY ETM!
