    Seems easier to just add a link. St. Pete family's Jeep totaled by exploding Note 7 - Story | FOX 13 Tampa Bay
    I wonder how solid this story is. I wonder if they're doing an investigation into the cause of the fire to confirm. I would assume so. You would think they would wait for confirmation first.
    Wow, that's crazy. At least no one got hurt.

    Sounds like a plan to try to get money "Nathan said his vehicle was a point of pride, telling FOX 13 News he had made many upgrades to the vehicle."

    I don't know but the story seems fishy to me, like the fire was set intentionally to try to get money.

    If you need a new ride just leave your Note 7 charging while you in the mall. Samsung will get you that $25. pre paid card out right away.

    Does it really even matter if he's lying or not? Lets say Nathan worked for a McDonald's and gets fired because they find out he's gay or something along those lines. Now he goes and files a lawsuit against McDonald's and next thing you know there's 1000 others claiming the same. Rather than have the bad publicity McDonald's probably will opt the settle even without investigating each claim.

    Where Samsung messed up was that they should have done a proper recall and told all users to turn there phone off and return immediately. Then they could had lessened the damage. By them not they are leaving the door open for anyone to make false claims. At the end of the day we will never know what came first, the fire from the car burning up the phone or the phone burning up the car, but there aren't any recent news of Jeep catching on fire on there on so most will assume it was the phone.

    I can almost guarantee once the new phones are ready they will probably then call for a full recall. They are just scared now that if they recall people won't come back. Its not like when they recall a car, recall or not you are still stuck with it.

    I don't buy it. There seem to be too many logic faults in the story. Anyone own a Jeep and want to chime in on how it's power system works? I suspect it's like most cars on that if you turn off the engine, or take the keys out it cuts off power to the cigarette lighter, and nothing would charge from there. I'm thinking the guy and/or his wife heard about the Note battery incident and decided to commit insurance fraud. I seriously doubt he left the keys in the car, his engine running, his Note charging, and been oblivious or choosing to ignore the charging warnings that had been in the news and notified to him by Samsung and his carrier.

    You people all sound effing crazy. Samsung is recalling 2.5 million phones at a cost of a billion plus because the phones are exploding. And now you really think that when it happens in the wild, that it is some sort of conspiracy?
    Everyone is a cynic these days, unless it happens to them they won't believe it.

    Every Jeep I have owned does this,so because this guy's jeep is his pride and joy and he has sunk a lot of cash into (which by the way thousands of Jeep owners do the same thing including myself) his story is fishy to some here... Sheese some people need to get out more...

    Until Samsung issues a statement to turn these phones off and not use then, we're going to see more stories just like this.. and they have been lucky so far.. The first major accident/death from this will will cost them more than telling folks to do this.. But I find it strange that people here think that everyone is lying about this... And just out for a quick buck.. Very strange

    In "most" American vehicles, the lighter stays hot after tje car is turned off and keys pulled, at least most up till 2013 did... "most" foreign vehicles, the lighter jack ****s off with the car.

    These are the type of stories i hate because they are so hard to prove one way or the other. The guy said his Jeep was a source of pride for him because he had made extensive modifications to it. I read that as something he did caused the Jeep to catch on fire, but we'll blame the phone!

    I just watched this on the news this morning. The phone is a melted mass so not sure if it was a note 7 but he seemed to be upset about the loss of his vehicle. He also said he had no issues with the phone up until that point. He only had it 4 days. This is the kind of information that's helpful. Did all of them happen in the first week or so of charging? Just because the phone has been out for 2 1/2 weeks doesn't mean everyone has had them for that long and battery failure could be early on. That would give some of us a little relief until replacements can get here. I may go trade out today because I just can't stand having this great phone that I'm scared of. There is literally nothing else I want but with no one knowing when the new ones will arrive I just can't keep worrying.
