Recall 2008-2009 Fire Risk

7 posts in this topic

Not really sure why it's limited to the 2008-2009 model years as no one can point to any changes in the insulation for later models.  Also doesn't address fires involving the SAM..... :)

The one thing no one has mentioned about the insulation is that MICE is may likely cause of this, that is what happened in mine (not a fire) but the insulation being torn off, to get in the car it self . I had not cleaned my car out since winter small bits of food like chips under the seat. They can smell that. The other thing is the muffler on mine needed to be replaced because of the flex pipe causing the muffler tale pipe to go against the black plastic cover causing it to melt and smoke. Had that all replaced. Now that would likely cause a fire in my opinion. I wonder if these cars had such a problem and was not noticed in time. Just a thought.

2008s and 2009s that have the recall done will hopefully be fire free.  We will have to see if in a few years 2010+ cars start to burn up.
