DeVille 4WD

  • miles
We were driving on I-40, 25 miles of kingman, AZ. The car seemed to miss, dash lights blinked and "service air bag" appeared on computer. Within 30 seconds smoke was coming from under passenger seat - pulled over, flames were now coming out front side passenger door. Three fire extinguishers extinguished fire. Car towed to kingman. Insurance estimates at $15,500. Cadillac doesn't seem to be too interested. Car was fully warratied. Insurance has informed us it was an electrical defect.
