About a week ago I was cruising up and down P.C.H. and as I slowed down to park i noticed the engine ran extremely rough at idle, kinda freaked me out a bit since I hadn't been experiencing any problems such as this before hand. So I get out let my car, cool off a bit and stroll along the beach for about an hour, Hop back in the car and everything is fine. Then yesterday as I slow to park right outside my house the rough idle starts up again. Not too long ago I got a letter in the mail from Volvo about a recall on the ETS system, looking under the symptoms of a bad ETS was the engine running rough at idle. Being pretty sure that was it I called my service manager to see what his thoughts were w/ out mentioning the recall and he came to the same conclusion. I can't get the car in the shop til sometime later this week to have the software upgrade done, but I really hope and pray that this is <B>all</B> it is.

looks like the software upgrade is not the only thing that they will have to to.<p>From the sound of it, they will probably have to replace the ETM also.<p>Lucky for you that item is under warranty for 10 years or 200,000 miles.<p>

Could be the ETM, but the recall notice labeled it "ETS" or "Electronic Throttle System".
