"The Michigan automaker said in U.S. government documents posted Thursday that it doesn't know what's causing fires in some 2021 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator SUVs.

Still, the company said the fires can happen even while the engines are off.

There have been 16 reports of fires under the hood and 14 of them were in rental company vehicles. Ford hasn't developed a repair for the fires, which appear to start at the back of the engine compartment on the passenger side."

Yeah, gasoline is flammable. I see the ICE crowd might finally be figuring that out.

This one recall for gas cars that might catch fire is bigger than the number of Chevy Bolts recalled for batteries that might catch fire.

Really? I could not see that coming. A car that sold 4500 units had a smaller recall than an SUV that sold 80000 units in a year. With this kind of insight you could be making $200k+ a year as an automotive data czar.

People still buy domestics?

In any case, that's what you get driving a monstrous land yacht.

25,000 Bolts in 2021. Not 4500 total.

Gasoline is flammable. There are thousands of gasoline car fires every year. Electricity is safer, more efficient, and far less polluting.
