engine caught fire while parked engine caught fire while parked engine caught fire while parked

This car has been well taken care of. No major repair work has been done and now, for no reason the car burst into flames while I was grocery shopping. Thank God the fire department was less than a quarter of a mile away, or other vehicles could have become involved and severely damaged. I have had no indication that this was about to occur and would like KIA to address this claim. I am not looking for an exorbitant amount of money, but I would like some help to replace my vehicle. I work several jobs to make ends meet, and this incident has hampered my ability to earn a living.
