Potential responses:

1. Get 'em while there're hot!
2. I think the Yukon looked better after the fire.
3. GM committed to investigate the fire and, if necessary, promptly issue a recall in 2026.

Re: Yikes!! FIRE!! I was just bragging on the '15 Yukon

That story is shocking. I mean that thing is literally newly designed for 2015 and it is right off of the assembly line, as those trucks were just recently delivered to dealerships - and it catches on fire??? Can't wait to see the reason. I know some Wranglers were doing that, and I think a couple of Telsa's self-combusted recently, and now the Yukon. Makes me afraid to put my car in my garage.

I LOVE the escalade head lights. The tail lights aren't shabby either. The escalade is a serious machine. Loving the redesign. Absolutely loving it.

Back to the topic,

I am interested to hear what exactly caused the fire and if it is a widespread issue or an isolated event.

People who live in glass houses should not throw stones. New Durango video somewhere on here doing the same "dance".

Re: Yikes!! FIRE!! I was just bragging on the '15 Yukon

From what I understand, direct injection engines could theoretically be more prone to causing fires....would like to here other opinions on this...

Maybe same issue they recalled trucks for - was a software issue if the trucked idled too much.
