Filed under: Sedan, Etc., Videos, Acura, Luxury



Watching your car burst into flames before your eyes is never good news, and it's even worse when you're mere moments away from trading it in at the local dealership. This Car-B-Q blaze apparently erupted at Acura 2000, a dealer in Brampton, Ontario.

According to the hyped-up cameraman (who evidently works next door at Northwest Lexus) and his eccentric play-by-play commentary, this Acura owner is about to be left without a ride home and might want to consider switching to a Lexus instead.

Stories a bit wrong, apparently the guy just had the power steering recall done and the tech didn't tighten a hose. And the dealer and honda ca are making the guy go through his own insurance.
