My friends Mercedes was off outside, and burst into flames
My friends 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLK 250 with only 80,000km on the odometer was parked outside her house and randomly at 9:30pm the car caught fire and exploded mainly from the engine bay area.
Incredibly lucky as she just parked the car outside, and not inside the house. She just got the car and it had no mechanical problems, or anything odd happening electrically, its even more concerning the car was off and this happened.
Thankfully the car was not parked inside the house, and the fire department saved the day.... but what the hell...
I would NOT expect a Mercedes Benz to blow up randomly, I doubt she will get another Mercedes again... maybe Toyota/Lexus... and I love Mercedes but this just scared her away.
