    Most likely, just about every model of car has had some units that burned. I've seen several cars on fire, including a limo. The fact that one or two of the model that I own has burned does not worry me.

    Ditto to that. Plus that's why you carry insurance.

    Here are before and after pictures. As you can see the only identifiable is the trunk.

    Looks like it started under the hood. I remember Honda having a problem and recall on CRV's a couple of years ago where they tended to catch fire immediately following the first oil change. Turned out the factory applied oil filter gasket could stick to the motor and then after the new filter was on there would be 2 gaskets stacked one on top of the other. The double gasket would blow out and the oil would spray on the exhaust and catch fire. Not saying that's what happened to the Cruze but motor fires happen to new cars occasionally.

    I agree. Even though it burnt to the ground I bought a 2012 model.

    As an aside, on another forum there was discussion about which brand is most likely to be seen in flames. VW/Audi was the unanimous winner.

    Completely off topic, but **** that blue cruze must have been burning for a long ass time! I just had a near perfect '99 Camaro SS with only 41K on it light up. I was in the middle of tuning and it caught on fire due to a aftermarket fuel line that came off due tothe owner not fully making sure it snapped on the factory feed line which is right next to the header. This car burned for 20 min including the call to 911 before the local FD got it put out in 30 sec with foam. You can see the main heat was on the driver side, took 10 min to burn thru the fiberglass hood and catch the top of the dash and head liner which took out any usuable parts in the interior.
