Hi hope someone can help
I have/ had a 08 (pre facelift) ford focus 1.8 zetec climate parked it at about 830am went back to it about 10am got a friends bag out of the boot. At 12 noon I was called from work "I think your car is on fire" which it was the boot was on fire opened it and put the fire out major smoke damage and the right hand side of the boot had fire damage burnt and melted interior basicly confined to the right hand side (as you look into the boot)
Any one know of any problems like this on the focus?
Dealer NOT helpfull at all (surprise! ) insurance co say they do not cover vehicle defects which under the circumstances they think it is.
Any help would be appriciated
