Car fires happen to all makes.
There is an advisement by the NHTSA not to park your 5 series BMW in the garage due to an unsolved fire case. Imagine that.

It sucks and I can see why one wouldn't buy that brand again. But, I don't think its anything to worry about. Fires are investigated at very small population numbers because they can quickly cause life threatening damage if they spread to surrounding structures (the probability of getting hurt while driving a vehicle that lights off is almost nill)

Perform due diligence. After that, have fun. You worry too much and life will pass you by

sounds like a JK burned at Rausch Creek this past week. Was an auto trans, sounds like fluid dripped on the exhaust. There's a thread on the RC forums discussing the need to carry fire extinguishers. It sounds like the owner did not, by the timesome folks got over with someextinguishers it was too late and i believe they went through 20 extinguishers trying to keep the tires and gas tank from catching fire before the firedepartment arrived to put out the fire. So glad no one was hurt. I just ordered 2 and some quick release mounts for my tj. Message on the RC forum from somone in the club this guy is with is that they will now require 2 extinguishers on all club vehicles.
