The contact owns a 2002 Volvo S60. While driving 65 mph, the vehicle reduced in speed going to 35 mph. The contact applied pressure to the accelerator pedal and the vehicle failed to accelerate. The vehicle was taken to a Volvo dealer who diagnosed the failure as the ETM and was replaced it at the owners expense. The ETM failure recurred. The vehicle will be diagnosed by the dealer. The failure mileage was 110000 and the current mileage was 154000.
