12/2/2017 - BALDWIN, MD
ON NOVEMBER 9TH MY WIFE WAS DRIVING OUR 2001 VOLVO S80 TO CHURCH. SHE PARKED THE CAR BUT IT BEGAN TO MOVE. IT ACCELERATED AND SHE WOUND UP DRIVING INTO A TREE TO AVOID HITTING OTHER CARS. SHE WAS ALSO WORRIED THAT CHILDREN FROM THE SCHOOL MIGHT BE AROUND. THE CAR WAS IN PARK. THE ENGINE WAS OFF. THE EMERGENCY BREAK WAS ON. THE STEERING WHEEL WAS TIGHT, MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO STEER SINCE THE ENGINE WAS OFF. THE CHURCH SECRETARY OBSERVED THE INCIDENT. SHE SAW SMOKE COMING OUT OF THE BACK OF THE CAR WHICH WOULD INDICATE THE EMERGENCY BREAK WAS ON. WHEN SHE FIRST REACHED THE CAR WITH MY WIFE IN IT SHE NOTED THAT THE CAR WAS IN PARK.

VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

7/20/2013 - CAREFREE, AZ
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!
