The volume spikes to as loud as possible. It sounds like an airplane is about to land on top of you. Scares me to death every time it happens. Totally intermittent so I can never predict when it's going to happen. It happens whether I use the steering column controls or the radio button, turning it on, off, up or down.
Also had a problem with the amp, but not this problem. Fan motor would never shut down and amp was replaced at no cost under pre-certified warranty. Levinson stereo seems to get quite a few complaints over the years (e.g., speakers, amps). However, I have had no other problems with our system.
