I agree. I also chatted with my brother, who has been a firefighter for 11 years, and he said that he has never seen a car fire start due to the battery.

What kind of different type battery? The salesman moved the passenger seat on one up for me this week and it looked like a regular car battery to me.

I don't believe it until it is confirmed with additional source,and if this post is accurate,it could be any after market tampering crap they install on the vehicle,we have heard about a few of those after market ideas already at this website.

Yea, I must have made the whole thing up lol...Some people are funny lol...It could have been many things that caused the fire; not saying it was the cars fault. I just said I saw a 2011 on the side of the highway that had been completely burned inside and hoped it was not some electrical problem. I hope there is something about it because I am very curious myself as to what happened.

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee on fire

I rember if you had a really fat person sit in the back of an original VW Beatle the seat springs couls short the battery out. LOL

Now the wkII has it under the passenger seat, wonder if the same could happen? lol.... so, how fat were the people standing beside the burnt wreck?
