NEWS:  Volvo recalls 360,000 cars for speed control bug

DETROIT, Nov 24 (Reuters) - Volvo, a unit of Ford Motor Co. is recalling about 360,000 cars because of a problem with vehicle speed controls that can cause engines to lose power without warning, Volvo said on Friday.

Volvo said a defect in the electronic throttle module in cars built between 1999 and 2002 could cause the vehicle to shift into a "limp home" mode in which the maximum speed is about 15 miles per hour.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) ordered the Volvo recall.

The recall applies to Volvo C70 and V70 models built between 1999 and 2002, S60 models built between 2001 and 2002, and S70 and V70X models built between 1999 and 2000.
