Video: Family flee for their lives as fire breaks out in brand new BMW!

A mother told Thai Rath that a nanny had to grab her eight month old child and run for their lives as her brand new BMW X3 started burning at a gas station. 

 

"Bobeau Rapeeporn" posted a brief video of the drama.

 

She had gone into Amazon to get a coffee and left the nanny with her son in her car with the engine running. 

 

She had only bought the vehicle three weeks ago. 

 

Gas station staff came running in to say her car was on fire and smoke was billowing out the back. A good Samaritan member of the public got a fire extinguisher but some parts had melted. 

 

The owner claimed that BMW Thailand had been useless. 

 

They gave a cursory inspection after the incident on Friday then said they were on holidays. 

 

She should bring in the car on Wednesday (today). 

 

She claimed that she had received no apology or explanation from BMW. 

 

Thai Rath did not say they had asked the company for comment, notes Thaivisa.

The picture of the melted plastic is from the engine, but the smoke appears to come from the rear of the car. Wonder if it is a hybrid with the battery pack in the boot?

X3s in Thailand are 2 litre turbo diesels, aren't they?  Is there a hybrid X3?

I was thinking perhaps she has picked up a plastic bag or something flammable and it has caught up on the exhaust system
