In the wake of a recent public relations nightmare for GM, leading to the recall of nearly 700,000 vehicles, it would seem that GM has another headache. On March 23, at around 2 PM, firefighters in Anaheim, California, received calls of a vehicle on fire.
The vehicle, a 2015 GMC Yukon, was being driven on a test drive by a potential buyer when the SUV suddenly shut off and smoke began billowing from under the hood. It didn't take long for firefighters to knock down the blaze, but not before the Internet and Twitterverse was set ablaze with the news. Luckily no one was hurt in the blaze, aside from GM's reputation.
This can't be a good thing, especially with the popularity of the full-size SUV market diminishing in recent years. It is unclear if the potential owner of the charred vehicle went through with her purchase or decided to wait for the 2015 F-150.
