My client was driving a 2009 GMC Acadia (acquired 09-03-2008) on interstate 10 near marriana Florida on 08-08-09 when the car caught on fire and burned completely. My client, her daughter, ann and ann's 2 young boys were traveling to a destination in Florida. Fortunately one of the boys needed to go to the bathroom so they stopped along side the interstate. The car burned up in front of their eyes.. we have received no reports of the cause yet. I have a lot of photographs. Fortunately, no one was burned - but the car and all of its contents were burned completely.
