I had just graduated from College when my parents got one of the first X5s from our dealership. Upon coming inside we began to smell something burning because we were in the kitchen talking, and it smelled like a burnt light receptacle or something. Upon further investigation we found that this one month old car was ON FIRE, flames actually emitting from the front grill. We put it out and took it into the dealership. Turns out a part was replaced and eventually recalled for all X5's. Our was the first. Something to do with the fan or something, I could get the details.

Bottom line, if this had happened at night and we had gone right to bed and not smelled anything, would our whole house have burned down? Would the fire have spread to the gas tank and blown us up?

Who knows....
