While I was driving on the freeway, suddenly a fire started for no reason from under the passenger glove compartment, burning plastic was dripping to the floor mats. I pulled over to the shoulder, and after several minutes my car was totally on fire. I would like to know if there are other incidents of spontaneous fires for this make and year model.
