Seems worse than Tesla Model S to me!
Fire risk: GM recalls 303,000 Chevrolet, GMC pickups
8 fires and 303,000 recalled and no big deal, 3 Tesla's and no recall and the s--- hits the fan. Certainly Tesla is being held to a much higher and ridiculous standard. Why do you think this happened, maybe it is the media or is it something else going on.
It's the media hungry for ratings. No one reads/listens to stories about GMs burning because it's common and it's a GM so poor quality is expected. Tesla is "hot" so it will get increase ratings.
And there are no 100 page threads on the "General Motors Club" forum endlessly discussing them.
Well, it's only up to about page 25 in my browser
Six post so far.
Awww come on, Jerry. Let's not use the word "hot" with the word "Tesla" in a forum post about fires, OK??? :wink:
Did the Chevies burn to the ground? Were the cars totaled?
Doubt it. Every fire department in the world has quite a bit of experience in dealing with ICE fires. Every North American fire department is quite experienced with dealing with full size pickup fires.
As opposed to opening a hole in the frunk so a controlled fire aiming toward the ground is allowed to spread through the frunk and continue to spread after pouring water on an electrical fire.
To bad they cant update the software through the internet that would have saved a recall ha :wink:
Very experienced, as these things burn all the time, but that has nothing to do with whether the car burned to the ground or not. I've seen firemen standing around a burning car, hosing down the pavement so it doesn't melt. If a car is that involved you're not going to be able to stop it. It depends on how big the fire gets before the firemen arrive.
Awesome! You are soooo right.
...Film at 11:00...or not...
Agreed. The firemen I have talked to recently ( talking to them about this issue has become one of my new hobbies ) have responded to more car fires than house fires.
The average person is probably more likely to experience leaving a burning car than leaving a burning building.
