Last night at 1:30 a.m. my son woke to an explosion. Thank God he was visiting as we did not even hear it! He called to us for keys to the other vehicles to move them out of harms way. The flames started in the cargo area and out of the hybrid battery vent. The car was well maintained. I loved that car, but NOT ANYMORE! The emissions from that noxious fire that totalled my car surpassed any that we saved the planet! If you are looking wait on any Fords! Sanyo batteries from what I can discern on the internet. Of course our book for the car is gone! Beware...
