My uncle's caught fire as well. Right in front of my house. Firefighters had to make a hole in the hood to put it out. Out of nowhere as well. Still have the pics and everything

You mind posting them? I'm kind of curious to see the burn pattern

Remember way back when a yellow "bumblebee" caught fire in 2010 and that caused the positive battery cable needing to get wrapped with heat wrap or something next to the engine block?

That sucks. I may start parking mine outside. I would hate to loose my man cave and other cars.

Early production 2010's were affected by this yea. Hasn't been an issue since, or until now anyway.
