    Ford SUV explodes on own

    http://www.abcactionnews.com/stories...0422ford.shtml

    Family's Ford SUV burns in driveway, sparking recall questions
    an ABC Action News report 04/22/05

    Moments after looking for missing homework in the SUV Wednesday night, the whole thing just blew up.

    "There were three quick explosions, and we went outside to see what was going on and we realized that the car was on fire," Cathy Dill recalled.

    Cathy said it happened so quickly she initially suspected some sort of foul play, until a neighbor told her about Ford's fire failures and a recall for some Ford F-150s, Expeditions, and Lincoln Navigators. The vehicles share a similar chassis and, evidently, a slew of faulty cruise control switches that have been blamed for a number of engine compartment fires.

    Sounds like the Ford Pinto that could explode in a rear impact collision. Admintally that needed an outside source
