The danger of car catching fire emerges when the vehicle is left on the manual mode, which is the first gear, for a while that causes the steering fluid to heat up and may results into fire in the engine section, if not noticed. Thank God! Such problem is not reported in India so far.

General Motors has taken the initiative to fix this problem within no time, although no such complaints have been received by the US based auto giant. If the problem in found in any of the vehicle the company will be replacing the power steering fluid cooler at no extra cost.
