Cooper 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 61,000 miles
Went out to dinner with my parents - gone approximately 2 hours - came back to find the car completely burned. Fire department was called by a neighbor. There was no indication at all that there was anything wrong when we parked the car. Have found other cases (via the internet) in the uk that this has happened.
