If I have a module blow (had one failure in 55k miles so far), it'll probably cost out the wazoo...The moonroof control on my Volvo S80 failed two years ago, continually opening then closing then opening then... I was sure it was just the switch since I could wiggle the switch to make it stop cycling. But no, the module replacement was quoted at $352.00. Since I don't often use the moonroof I decided that I could wiggle the switch for a long time at that price. I can only imagine what it'd cost to replace an engine control module. I suspect that one of the many lessons Ford took away from its ownership of Volvo was the profitability of replacement modules. My car's ten years old and, given the proliferation of technical gimcracks and gewgaws throughout the industry, I'm increasingly reluctant to buy a new car. Hybrids and BEVs are surely at the bleeding edge of this technology. KennyOcurmudgeon-in-training
