4/8 I was driving the car and it just died out as if it was out of gas. There was still power to the radio/lights ect. The engine would crank but not kick over. The engine would not rev upon pressing the accelerator. It was taken to dlr chevy73 by GM roadside assistance. On 4/9, around 2:30pm I spoke w/ carolyn tirelli-service advisor, who at first said there was not word of the repair. Then stated she saw the tec pulling the vehicle out of the service bay. She advised it appeared he was wrapping up the repair job. At 4pm service advisor steve lambrose called and advised the tec took the car out for a test drive. Said tec saw a spark, smoke then car was engulfed in flames. Tried to state tec had done no repair. Contrary to what carolyn tirelli advised earlier. Advised fire dept was called C. jay houck fire marshall camden county 856-374-6176. Steve lambrose/svc advisor advised me to also call my insurance co. Geico/barbara malanga-claims adjstr/fire 800-645-7550 X5647. Dealer claims to not know what problem was at all. No findings. Car smells like electrical fire. But original symptoms/failure seem more like fuel line problem. No prior failures or warnings. No warning lights, stall outs or any indication anything was wrong with the vehicle. I or any passengers could have been killed or seriously injured the way this occurred. Car front end broken off, hood buckled from fire or firemen. /car a little over 1yr old. Still warranteed. Please help/advise.
