problem #1

Dec 132007

Grand Prix 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles
After filling my gas tank and paying for gas, I came out to my vehicle and after starting it smoke started coming from the hood! I lift the hood to investigate and the engine was on fire. (there is a report on file with the fairfiel township police and fire depts.) walker Pontiac in dayton Ohio replaced the engine, I have since received a letter noting the problem with the engine but there has been no recall to date. I have been warned not to park in the garage as this continues to be a problem and there has been an incident of home fire with injuries, due to the vehicle catching fire in the garage!!!
