At least 220,000 Vauxhall Zafira B cars have been recalled for inspections following a series of fires.
New figures shown to ITV News suggest there have been almost 200 fires involving Zafira B cars.
Here are some tips from the UK fire service on what to do if a fire breaks out in your car:
Switch off engine
Release bonnet – Do Not Open
Get everyone out of the vehicle
Get far away from the vehicle and stay away, keeping onlookers and others away
Dial 999 and call the fire brigade
Warn oncoming traffic, if safe to do so
If and only if you believe it is safe to do so, attempt to put out the fire with a dry powder or foam extinguisher
If the fire is in the engine compartment, do not open the bonnet but aim the extinguisher through the radiator grille or under the edge of the bonnet
Use with caution and if in doubt, don’t attempt to tackle the fire
Never use water on an engine fire – it can short out wiring and spread burning petrol with disastrous effect
