Freaky!Dodge for ever said:For a few hours last week, my copper-colored Ram pickup cruised the plains of North Texas like some overdressed Duke of Dallas.
Tall, broad and powerful, the Ram Longhorn Edition offered every option a truck-loving Texan would want: a Hemi V-8, crew cab, etched leather seats, 20-inch wheels, and eight-speed automatic and four-wheel-drive.
Need a hill? The proud, polished Ram could drag one in.
And at about 7 p.m. last Wednesday, it all disappeared in a thick column of acrid brown smoke on the side of the Dallas North Tollway — $54,335 worth of truck gone in about three minutes.
Fred Diaz, CEO of Ram, was profusely apologetic about the fire — but certainly didn’t have to be. I couldn’t find anything to suggest that this was anything other than an extremely rare occurrence.
“We take these things very, very seriously,” Diaz said. “I’ve got to believe this is a one-in-a-billion situation. But we’ve got a team of engineers working on it, and we’ll figure out what happened.”

Doesn't look good for Chrysler :angry2:
Mom & Dad bought a new Chev car. 6 months later, Dad stopped at a stop sign (on the way to my Aunt's funeral) .... engine fell out. Dealer towed it in and we went home in a new Oldsmobile. Ddn't look good for GM, but didn't affect sales... nor stop my parents from buying another Chev car (abeit 16 years later).
