I had a GM Death Trap 7 years ago.
2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP supercharged. Aside from the fact the interior door trim was falling apart and the passenger side floor board got wet
every time it rained heavy there was a SERIOUS problem.
The supercharger was somehow creating enough heat to ignite the engine and quickly engulf the car in flames. I recall, while still making payments,
that GM sent a letter that basically stated ' The car has a risk of catching on fire and until we can figure out a fix, which we haven't yet, Dont
drive it until we let you know the recall, as there isn't one yet'
The car was pretty fast and got great gas mileage considering it was a larger car with a 3.8L supercharged engine, 30mpg @ 65mph.
There are some deaths and videos of them on fire, since Pontiac went out of business, I was screwed on the deal.
