Toyota Matrix / engine fire

Kennewick, WA, US Review updated:

I purchased a 2009 Toyota Matrix new from the dealer. At 24k mi/ 2&1/2 yrs old, the car started smoking. I attempted to pull over and the brakes completely failed. I had to use my emergency brake to stop and all the dash lights were lit up . A sheriff was behind me and witnessed the incident. I got out of my car, walked across the street and the engine compartment erupted into flames. Within 5 min. the car was engulfed and destroyed. My insurance hired an investigator and Toyota finally got their own investigator after repeated calls from me and my ins company. The ins investigator strongly agrees it was vehicle/electrical failure. Toyota's investigator failed to find a cause and are unwilling to accept responsibility. I came very close to being killed. After 3 Toyota's I am now a Hyundai owner.

    Send this to TV stations to investigate, ABC-Brian Ross, etc. Copy it to federal and state transportation boards, etc and enclose your investigators report, pictures, etc.
