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

Ouch. But if you were sleeping mply on the way home from the dealership, wonder, what they did to make it catch fire? Sounds like new keys to me in your future.

I would guess a tech at the dealership left something on or near the exhaust. It's sad that any brand new car burns to the ground like that let alone a coyote.
