A fire started under the driver's side of the vehicle while driving at 40 mph. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The cause of fire was unknown. The manufacturer agreed to share half of the cost to repair the seat. The heat mechanism in the leather seat burned through the seat and through the consumer's jacket.
