    And your point is?

    There are tens of thousands deaths by car accidents per year in India.

    Hell even cobras kill more than 30k people per year.

    Who cares if 6 cars catch fire?

  5. Cheap and desperate technology.
  6. i don't know if exotics have a higher rate of catching fire, or if it's because they're rare so when one catches fire, it makes the news. but i personally know two people whose exotics spontaneously combusted.

    but when you're packing 500 horsepower in a very confined space, with a 23 gallon fuel tank, bad things can happen.

    oh, if it does catch fire do not extinguish it. it's better to total the car than to own a story car.
  7. well, it a big figures about car accident, your government have any solution to reduce the number of this?

  9. Seems like a lot of cars are having problems now.

    There is still the ongoing recall of a certain Toyota model and I just watched a Ferrari in flames.

    So we see it happening to low priced cars, medium priced and high priced car.

    I think car makers should start going back to the drawing table.
