    VW Jetta Fire!

    From another forum:
    MK4 VW caught on fire in markham today

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I live in Toronto, Canada.. and I used to drive a MK4 golf, and now I drive a VW Rabbit..

    today when I went for lunch, I saw a 2006 GLI (model year confirmed with owner) smoking.. smoke was coming out from the steering wheel..

    *I think the engine bay is on fire and the smoke is being forced out..

    the owner told me that he had just started his car and it started smoking, he left the car, and a minute later.. a small fire developed on the steering wheel... airbag came out, and later popped..3 minutes later, the whole car is on fire..

    my MK4 saved my life, but after seeing this, i sorta lost some confidence in VW...

    check this out:
    sorry for the large pics

    could the rumoured poor electrical issues with VW's have been root cause to this unfortunate incident?
    tune in next time to find out...

    insurance covers this (even if you're under warranty)

    sadly all brands catch fire...it just happens

    google 'honda fire' or 'acura fire' and you'll see
