    I once had a car which several times tried to set itself on fire. I never paid it a dime, however. :D

    Someone I know tried to torch theirs years ago. This car was so bad even the fire wouldn't start. :eek: :D

    True story. I think it was a 78-80 Buick Riviera. :rolleyes: :D

    A few years ago I went out in the back part of my sign storage yard & found a brand new Mustang that had been slammed under my chainlink fence. An older guy owned it & had reported it stolen He had left it in the driveway with the keys in the ignition according to the police report. He just wanted to quit paying on it. The airbags had been cut off & used to wipe all fingerprints just like the pro car theifs do.
    He got his insurance money, paid the car off & had some left over. I got to pay a few thousand in damages to Oil company owned signs & 2k for my fence. When it's a criminal act that destroys real estate insurance doesn't pay, but when it's a car they do pay. Go figure.

    I work with a guy that burned a car a few years ago because it was a lemon. He took the money for the car out of the credit union and only had liability insurance on it. How stupid can you be, He is still harassed to this day.

    My biological dad's family had a knack at setting fires to vehicles and/or property they owned and then claiming insurance... Thank God those morons got caught! :mad:

    Hey I remember seeing a thread about somebodys KIA having problems with the lights flashing and batteries dieing.
    I'm pretty sure if you torch it, all that stuff will stop happening:confused:;):D
