Re: Durango citadel engine fire

If the headline said Jeep GC Overland engine fire people would be freaking out and running to the dealerships but since it's a Durango it's humorous...

So are you freaking out, running to your dealership? Lighten up. The GC is basically the same car, and no I'm not freaking out. It's never a good thing when a car just spontaneously catches on fire, but unless there are widespread reports(like the Ferrari 458) of other Durangos and GC's catching on fire then there really should be no reason for concern.

However I did read that there was a Challenger SRT8 392 that caught on fire on the assembly line the other day.....

Re: Durango citadel engine fire

It's not the first engine to catch on fire nor the last but it's pretty damn embarrasing for the Durango's re-debut. It would be nice to know the cause though.

So what's the build code for "incinerated itself on the production line"?

Re: Durango citadel engine fire

I wouldn't be surprised if it were rigged... D.C. conspiracy theories? J/K
were there any bank robberies or jail breaks reported during this time?

Re: Durango citadel engine fire

I will say this, having an engine catch on fire while in a parade is probably a lot more exciting than having a steering wheel fall off while driving 65mph on a highway...

Re: Durango citadel engine fire

I am amazed with all the stupid people just standing there video taping a burning car.

Hmmmm lets see just how many people 26 gallons of fuel can burn.
