Driving in the freeway then caught on fire Nissan Altima
So I had just bought a Nissan Altima with
134th miles on it seem good it wasn't even
two hours since I bought the car. Two exits
away to get to my house the car made an
explosive noise from the side of the car at
first I thought it was a blown tire but smoke
started coming out I came out to check
and there was flames behind the engine, a
hose was caught on fire n a piston from the
engine came out idk how it happen if I was
running it at normal speed btw it's an 06
And your question is.......
I can see a fuel line leaking fuel and starting the fire, but a piston coming through the engine is another issue. Was there oil in it? Did you buy it from a dealer with a 30 day warranty? Call your insurance company?
I hope the car was insured. If you bought it from a dealer I would do everything in my power to make them give your money back.
