That looks tame in comparison to our nanny's brand new 2016 Subaru that spontaneously caught fire in her driveway 10 minutes after being turned off. Just a few hundred thousand cars that Subaru had to recall for that one.
Mmm hmm. There was also this one:Subaru recalled a few hundred thousand cars.
Subaru issues recall notice to over 600,000 car owners for potential fire risk
Spontaneous, non-traumatic cause would be bad. Hope Tesla responds quickly.@marycmccormack: @Tesla This is what happened to my husband and his car today. No accident,out of the blue, in traffic on Santa Monica Blvd. Thank you to the kind couple who flagged him down and told him to pull over. And thank god my three little girls weren’t in the car with him Mary McCormack on Twitter
Like what? Propylene glycol? They both have the same ignition temperature, around 700F. When mixed 50/50 with water, as is the case when used as coolant, they are both nearly inflammable (all of water needs to boil off first).I don't hear any exploding battery cells. Perhaps it is just the Ethylene Glycol burning.
Why can't Tesla use a safer coolant fluid?
That's covered under warranty.....right?
To provide you with even more assurance, the Battery and Drive Unit Limited Warranty will also cover damage to your vehicle from a battery fire even if it is the result of driver error, subject to certain exclusions.
