NO!!!! Not may Acadia!!! Just thought I'd share with you all what happened here on our parking lot. 2004 Ford Expedition caught on FIRE... We never found out what caused it. After the Fire Dept put the fire out we went back into work. Didn't get a chance to chat with the fire dept.

Notice how the hood melted away....

Wow!! A friend of mine had her car parked next to one that caught on fire. She had a Saturn and that non-scratch stuff melted off her car and left the shell. I can't believe that the hood melted like that on a Ford. It must have been a hot fire!

Ttwins,

Sorry for your loss, but I do like seeing Fords burning.

bear,
Thanks but this was not my Expedition. Just some one who was parked across our parking lot. I couldn't help not to take a video and pictures.

IIRC Ford had some ignition switch recalls due to shorting and fires. But is does look like this one started in the engine compartment.

That was probably an aluminum hood as a weight saving device. My RX7 has one since it is a convertible.

Good photos ttwins. I have a truck on fire photo I took one day while driving (think it was an S10), if I can find it I'll post it here.

A friend's F-150 did the same thing. Most likely it was the brake pressure switch on the cruise control system. There's power going to the switch even when the vehicle is off, and brake fluid can get in the switch and start a fire.

I don't think it was a 2004. I think this body style (obvious in bumper area) was 99-2001.
