2015 Ford Mustang Catches Fire With Only 6k Miles

Oooch!!!



from the article:
“Just picked my car back up from the dealership for some warranty issues. Driving on the freeway and noticed some white smoke coming from the hood. It progressively got worse so I pulled over into the shoulder. Instinctively thought the car was over heating and it was steam from the radiator. So I proceeded to pop the hood as flames burst from the edges of the hood. Here's the outcome. Insurance is going to love me."

3 pictures and full article

I'm glad he Ok but that sucks so bad and he's still going to be out some cash on this because the insurance company isn't going to give him all his money back. So he had 6k on it and had just picked it up from the dealership after it had some work done. Is he thinking something they did at the dealership caused this.

Anybody in a Camaro show up with marshmallows and some sticks?

As for the rest of us, I saw a good thread a while back about the importance of keeping a fire extinguisher with you no matter what you drive. They can be easily mounted out of the way. Plus you could help someone else from the same fate.
Cool gift idea, probably not for a wedding though.
