Grand Cherokee fire

Was there any sort of recall for fires? This one is local in Dallas Fort Worth near me. They said they locked their car and alarm started going off and they heard lots of popping noises and the car went up in flames. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1426022241.925832.jpg

I'd agree, focal point of fire seems to be right on upper windshield area, hood looks barely touched so doesn't look like an engine fire

Re: Grand Cherokee fire

Scott,
What is this about? Obviously you were aware of the visor being an issue. Has production stopped due to this?

Speak to your dealer. There is a recall notice for it to be rectified.
