Tell them that brand new Jeep Cherokees never catch fire especially while parked, less than 48 hours (and only two drives) after its owner bought it: http://www.cbs8.com/story/27757742/bran ... nto-flames
FCA's effort wasn't as good as GM's though, because that car actually found a home before self-immolating. One of GM's brand new SUV's caught fire during the test drive: http://ktla.com/2014/03/23/suv-erupts-i ... z2wukcdknn
This Mini Cooper also caught fire on a test drive, but no points to BMW since the car was used (2 years old): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kKbivBkJoM
Let's not get into Ferraris and Porsches catching fire spontaneously. Just because you spend as much money on a car as a house in some parts of the US doesn't mean you're immune from that problem.
I won't even get into recalls done by auto manufacturers because of defective wiring (like Ford) if not outright poor fuel tank design and/or placement (Ford Pinto, late 90's to early 2000's Jeep Grand Cherokee) resulting in fires.
