My car has about 180,000 miles, is right outside of the ten year “warranty” on the ETM and now needs the second ETM replaced. It’s going to run about $1200 for this repair. The repair will replace it with the same Volvo part (that doesn’t last well). An option that someone told me about was to buy a replacement part at xemodex.com which has a lifetime warranty. I am hesitant to do this because the website appears sketchy and no mechanic wants to do this. There is also a question of whether anyone can do this without the computer system, although the xemodex website says they program the ETM so a computer system is not necessary. Has anyone does this? Or does this sound foolish? Alternatively, should I even shell out $1200 on a 2000 Volvo with 180,000 miles?
