I MOVED MY CAR OUT OF THE DRIVEWAY SO MY NEIGHBOR COULD PLOW. HE SAID HE SMELLED SOMETHING WHILE I WAS IN MY CAR ACROSS FROM OUR DRIVEWAY. I PUT THE VEHICLE IN PARK, PUSHED SHUT OFF/TURN OFF BUTTON, VEHICLE INSTANTANEOUSLY FILLED WITH DARK ROLLS OF SMOKE COMING FROM THE PASSENGER SIDE FROM THE FRONT OF THE VEHICLE UNDER THE HOOD. I GRABBED THE DOOR HANDLE JUMPED OUT. MY NEIGHBOR CAME RUNNING TELLING ME TO DISENGAGE THE HOOD, I COMPLIED. FLAMES SHOT UP AND OUT FROM UNDER THE HOOD AS IT WAS BEING RELEASED. HE THREW A LOT OF SNOW ON THE FIRE EXTINGUISHING IT. WE INHALED THE MOST OBNOXIOUS FUMES FROM ANY AUTOMOBILE I HAVE HAD THE DISPLEASURE OF HAVING IN MY COMPANY. CAR WILL NOT START. AFTER THIS, MY HUSBAND CAME OUT TO SEE WHAT ALL THE YELLING WAS ABOUT. MY NEIGHBOR EXPLAINED IT TO HIM AND HE UNHOOKED THE BATTERY. THE CAR IS STILL PARKED AT THE SCENE OF THE FIRE. TODAY IS 2/22/2014 AND NO INSURANCE ADJUSTER HAS BEEN HERE YET. OUR TOWN FIRE DEPARTMENT WAS CALLED AND THE FIRE CHIEF ASSISTANT CAME THE VERY DAY INCIDENT OCCURRED AND FILLED OUT A FORM, I CONTACTED BUICK AND I HAVE A CLAIM NUMBER AND AM AWAITING FURTHER CONTACT FROM THEM. OUR TOWN HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT PLACED CONES AROUND MY VEHICLE.

THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN IN THE SHOP AT MCKINNEY BUICK GMC, AND GATEWAY BUICK GMC. THE BATTERY WAS THE FIRST THING TO GO, IT WAS REPLACED UNDER WARRENTY. THE SECOND ITEM TO GO WAS THE ALTERNATOR, IT WAS REPLACED UNDER WARRENTY. THE WINDSHIELD WASHER TANK CRACKED, WAS A RECALL, IT WAS REPLACED. THE STEERING COLUMN WENT OUT TOTALLY, BECAUSE OF THE TILT LEVER, IT WAS REPLACED UNDER WARRENTY. THE REAR WHEEL HUBS WENT OUT, THEY WERE REPLACED UNDER WARRENTY. THE A/C COMPREESOR WENT OUT THIS LAST SUMMER 2013, IT WAS REPLACE UNDER EXTENDED WARRENTY, I PURCHASED. NOW THE HEATER CONTROL SWITCH, OR SOMETHING JUST WENT OUT WITH THE SYSTEM, BECAUSE THE FAN HAS QUIT WORKING. SO NOW I'LL HAVE TO SPEND ANOTHER 300.00 DOLLARS ARE SO TO GET THE VEHICLE FIXED. THIS CAR HAS BEEN A LEMMON, I BOUGHT IT CERTIFIED USED, FROM LONE STAR BUICK GMC, WHEN THEY WERE IN TRANSITION TO MCKINNEY BUICK GMC, I HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS WITH THIS MODEL. OWNED TWO BUICK CENTURY'S PRIOR TO THIS VEHICLE, VERY RELIABLE, REPLACED A BLOWER MOTOR IN MY 1999 BUICK C, AND A BATTERY IN MY 2004 BUICK C. UNLIKE THIS PIECE OF CRAP 2010 BUICK LEMMON NIGHTMERE. COULD YOU POSSIBLY HELP ME OUT WITH THIS PROBLEM. THIS VEHICLE SHOWED VIA CAR FAX REPORT TO HAVE BEEN IN THE SHOP SIX TIMES PRIOR MY PURCHASE. IT ONLY HAD ABOUT 16500 MILES ON IT, WHEN I PURCHASED IT IN MAY OF 2011.
