On one occasion the car burst into flames moments after a family got out. Afterwards the owner, Sue Freemantle, went online to see if anyone else with the same car had had a similar experience. Other drivers came forward to say the same thing had happened to them. Vauxhall say:

"We are aware of reports concerning vehicle fire, involving right hand drive versions and have begun an internal investigation to determined the route causes of these fires. The safety of our customers in our number one priority"
