    Apparently, there are issues with Jeeps catching on fire. There have been recalls (including the Liberty model).

    3/20/12 article “Did Jeep Offer An Owner ‘Hush Money’ To Keep Quiet About Fire Risk?”

    “His was not the first late-model Jeep to catch fire, as a number of incidents of Wranglers experiencing massive system failures with no warning before bursting into flames have been reported to the Department of Transportation. Owners have also mentioned this issue on forums.”

    Praying for these kids and their families.
