Re: BURNT 2011 Grand Cherokee

Local fire department will have a log of the fire. Call and ask about a call in that timeframe for a vehicle fire

Re: BURNT 2011 Grand Cherokee

Spiderman was driving the jeep and the green goblin threw a pumpkin bomb in the sunroof.

Seriously tho... could be anything, cigarette, short somewhere. If it was a recall i think there would have been a few more known reported fires.

I wouldnt worry personally about it

Re: BURNT 2011 Grand Cherokee

Not bashing Chrysler or the WK2, but if I owned a WK2 I would be paranoid as shit parking that thing in my garage. I hope this is something they are looking into intensly right now and come up with a defenite fix very quickly.

You can be sure they are taking it extremely seriously this would cost them a ton more money not to fix than to fix.

If I had to venture a guess, wiring from the sunroof motor is getting frayed and coming in contact with the headliner. It would have to be a live wire (i.e., getting 12V when the key is on "run") to get to the point of causing that type of fire. It would not likely come from intermitent sunroof usage.

Subscribing.

Re: BURNT 2011 Grand Cherokee

This is what happens when you alienate smokers and don't offer simple ashtrays. Where would they rest their ash? I guess car makers prefer smokers flick their butts out the window and hope it doesn't get sucked in the rear widow or winds up on the side of some arid area with lots of dry brush.
