    "The highway safety agency says at least 32 rear-impact fire crashes involving the Grand Cherokees have resulted in 44 deaths, and at least five rear-impact crashes involving the Liberty have resulted in seven fatalities."

    Apparently the "trailer hitch fix" isn't working for the rear impact issue.

    Fix your **** Chrysler.

    "They've told us that they have nearly 400,000 parts, and yet we're getting complaints from consumers saying the dealers are telling them there aren't any parts."

    I'm so glad that automobile dealers are here to ensure consumer safety...

    say what you want about movie explosions, that real life accident looks like a movie scene.

    Well this is interesting:

    Fiery Calif. crash injures 2, destroys Ferrari - CNN.com

    For some reason a Ferrari crash and burn makes it to the front page of CNN. Go figure. I thought they only did that for Teslas.

    Witnessed a minor collision between a Lincoln and a PT Cruiser in SoCal last week. Within about 30 seconds, flames were roaring from the front of the Lincoln and passengers were scurrying. Didn't see anything on the ones about it LOL.

    I saw Video of this somewhere else from the other side. It started as a brake fire from the transport trailer.

    Puts the Model S that lost power after two days of ownership in perspective. Neither is good but I'd take loss of power over a fireball any day.
