Anyone else in the UK (Phil) remember the similar problems with the Volvo
300 series automatics? There were a number of cases just after the car was
launched where they either slipped from park to drive with no action from
the driver or accelerated sharply when the driver applied the brakes. Didn't
seem to affect Volvo's reputation at the time, probably because people
realised that as the usual drivers of such cars were almost senile (I know,
its a sweeping statement but chances are that its true) and as such couldn't
tell the difference between the two pedals.

I have to admit that I owned a 340 manual for a while, but as it consumed
propshafts at a rate of 1 every 2 months it didn't last very long.
