    A fireball of that size would be caused by a gasoline tanker. No way could a Kia Soul produce that kind of explosion.

    It’s true. See the thread on the Ford F-150 recall: http://gearheadsmiataclub.net/vB/sho...highlight=F150

    What is this Automotive world coming to? You would think that an automobile named Soul would be protected from spontaneous combustion. After all an internal combustion engine powers 95% of all modern vehicles with the exception off all electric vehicles, oh wait Smart phones explode without warning. Welcome to the 21st Century.
