I was travelling at 75 on the interstate when the car suddenly lost power down to 10 miles per hour and wouldn't exceed that speed. I finally was able to get off the interstate. It happened several times again as I was returning to colorado springs. I have a Volvo v70xc 2001. I had to have the computer replaced at a cost of almost $1000. The situation was very dangerous.
