Had anyone else had a 2008 Dodge Ram catch fire for no reason?
My 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 caught fire last week at 180,000 miles. No modifications made to the vehicle. I drove about 7 miles round trip to the post office and returned home. I parked on the street and went in to make lunch. Sat down and opened Facebook to see a notification from our local page that a truck on our street was on fire. I walked out to see what what was going on and saw the Leander Fire Department putting out the fire in my truck. The Chief seemed to think it started by the master cylinder. I can't imagine what would have happened if it had occurred while I was at the Post Office with my dogs inside or if had been parked in our driveway where the house most likely would have caught fire.
Below are the recalls, non that I would see that would cause the car to go on fire...
Just be lucky you and the dogs weren't in it. It's only a truck and can be replaced. That's what insurance is for.
I hope it was insured!
Of course there was a reason. I am not sure how a master cylinder could catch a car on fire though.
Bobbanka, did you ever find out what started the fire in your truck? Look at my pics and tell me that this is not eerily similar? Mine was just sitting in my driveway. Nothing on, and poof, gone.
It looks like the same truck. My wife thought it was my truck. Cannot be a coincidence....
