Default It just isn't your decade. Isn't that right, GM?

Quote:
A 2015 GMC Yukon burst into flames while on a test drive in Anaheim, CA on Sunday after smoke filled the cabin. Residents of the neighborhood where the driver abandoned the redesigned Yukon reported hearing a series of small explosions (likely the tires, based on the video), according to a report from KTLA and The Los Angeles Times.

...

The news of a new model catching fire comes on the heels of a massive and controversial recall for General Motors, which has faced criticism for failing to recall over one million vehicles due to faulty ignition switches.

GM is aware of the fire and is set to dispatch a field team to analyze the destroyed SUV "very soon," according to GM's Alan Adler. Adler added that it's too soon to know much of anything - the fire, after all, did only happen yesterday - but it's hoped that the field team being dispatched will have answers as soon as possible. We'll be sure to stay with this story and update you as more information becomes available. Scroll down for the full news report from KTLA.
Lol, the comments on that page are a good laugh at least.

BURN GM BURN.

A company that willingly killed people and did nothing. My hatred was just starting to subside. Forgiveness was slowly creeping in, and now this. Piss on you GM. I hope you get sued into bankruptcy again and Ford/Toyota buys you out.

GM's behaviour is rather strange, given they had the whole Ford/Firestone **** up as a reference in what not to do. (I suppose this is more towards the ignition recall vs this spontaneous combustion test drive specifically).

Yeah, **** GM. Maybe I'm still bitter about them needing the bailout instead of dying like any other badly managed company would, but this is just too much.
