Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee on fire

The batebry is an AGM which I have never heard an issue such as that and I agree Just because you read it on the internet does not make it accurate or true.

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?

You'd need to be huge to pull that one off.

Oh good! Let's invoke 1930's technology to suggest that engineering hasn't advanced over the years! If you could crush the battery compartment here, you wouldn't be able to get throught the door, even with that opening being enlarged from previous years!

Jim, you knew I was having a laugh didn't you?

You know that I know the WKII doesn't share any tech with Hitler's Revenge don't you?

Exclamation 2011 Grand Cherokee on fire

This is serious...... I just purchased a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4X4. I was driving in Dallas during rush hour traffic, went to roll down my driver side window and opened the sunroof. White smoke started coming out from under the headliner. I thought is was very odd, me being a mechanical engineer tired to figure out what was going on. I rolled the window back up and shut the sunroof, when I did so the smoke stopped. Rolled window back down and the smoke started again. Looked for the nearest Jeep Dealer, found one but was shut down. Ford dealer was next door the service manager greeted me. Once I opened my drivers door to show him what was happening the smoke really started coming. By the time he went inside the headliner was in full flame. He ripped the sun visor off to try to stop the fire. You could see a spot in the hole that was a orange as a cigarette lighter. Went to disconnect the battery to stop the power. The jeep is at the selling dealer, Chrysler has hired a third party investigator. Legal team is already involved/ Dealers Service manager said that he has never seen this happen before. Most likely Detroit will want the jeep back to tear it apart to find out why this happened. This jeep only has 1500 miles on it and was less then 1 month old. No customizations or changes. Same config from the first day I bought it. What do I do guys.
