I find this post absolutely amusing! I really hit a nerve with you. Forgive me for asking, but do you work for GM? I know they have individuals on payroll who troll blogs and try to disprove any comments that are negative towards the company. Bottom line: You don't know me so your comments about my concerns with public safety or trying to appeal to people's emotions are totally invalid. My purpose for posting was to find out if anyone else had experienced the same thing. Due to the high sensitivity of this case I have been strongly advised not to post any official findings at this time.
avalonandl - You must have misread what I wrote. I didn't say they died due to fire. I said "Unfortunately, many have died due to the defects in their vehicle (google Chevy Cobalt....124 lost their lives with that mess)". https://www.caranddriver.com/news/gm-ignition-switch-review-complete-124-fatalities-274-injuries My insurance company has found a few interesting things during their inspection. Due to the ongoing investigation I cannot comment further but am not surprised of their findings.
I get what you are saying, but my passenger seat has to be moved manually. not heated, etc. Thanks for clarifying and I wish I knew what happened. Too bad I didn't have a camera on the outside of my house that could have maybe given some clues. Again, thanks for the comments Nick!
M1ck3y - There is a cup holder in the front corner. It had a bandana in it and nothing else. The wiring runs behind the cup holder and up to the USB ports inside the console. I have pics but am unable to load due to the size constraint. It's a bum deal all around.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I do have pics of burnt wiring but cannot upload them due to size constraints. I know I did nothing wrong. If not me, that leaves a manufacturing defect.
All I can say is nothing was inside that could have started the fire and it pisses me off that GM is making excuses. Bottom line, the stupid truck caught fire with no one inside, nothing plugged in, no windows were rolled down no ember caught the seat on fire, I don't smoke, the sun did not magnify the console, no water bottle or sunglasses were in the console and concentrated the sun to cause it to burst into flames, I did NOTHING to cause this. Period. I bought my truck to drive, not have a weenie roast inside. GM doesn't care about anything but money. Research the history of the company and you will discover this yourself. I'm patiently waiting on my insurance company to see what they decided to do. Thanks everyone for your comments. Simply, this is BS and I'm paying for it as many have done before me.
L86 All Terrain, I agree with you totally. I had nothing but papers (insurance, receipts) in the console. I was told there was a 12v in the console so..... Upon researching the internet and inquiring if anyone else has had to deal with "spontaneous fire" with their GM, I was APPALLED at the number of problems consumers have had! These reports of fire are nothing new to GM, yet they seem to drag their feet and try to blame everyone else but themselves. Unfortunately, many have died due to the defects in their vehicle (google Chevy Cobalt....124 lost their lives with that mess).
