Numerous trips to the local Volvo dealer to find the issue with my Volvo. Last episode 10.07.2016 driving on city streets. Approx. Speed 25-30 mph. Slowing down and making a complete stop. Accelerating to move on but car is not responding. RPM stays at 600 even though gas pedal is pressed down. This can last 3 to 6 seconds. Finally car starts moving. I wanted to park on a fairly steep street in san francisco on 10.06.2016. On the first attempt I was too far away from the side of the street. Put car into reverse and attempted to back up. Again the engine stayed at 600 RPM and did not move at all. Since I was facing downhill the car started to roll downwards. Only my quick reaction I stepped on the brake pedal and pressed it as hard as I could. Car came to a standstill inches away from another car that was parked. This kind of problem is been ongoing.

Mold, mildew and bacteria growing in ventilation system. Initially noticed because of very bad odor coming from air conditioning system. A design flaw in air conditioning/ventilation system. Condenser does not drain properly, causing it to clog and mold/mildew and bacteria grow in the system. Volvo's solution is just change the filters more frequently to spray chemicals in the system rather than fix the problem. A check online shows that there are many other Volvo owners affected by the problem. Condenser should be recalled and fixed properly so that it drains and that mold and bacteria do not grow in the system. Inhalation of mold and bacteria has been shown to cause lung disease, and aggravates conditions like asthma. I have taken my vehicle to the dealer twice to have the problem addressed. They refused to replace the part. I also contacted Volvo corporate offices and they refused to intervene. They also refused to provide contact information for their district manager.
