I can't believe it!!!

It suddenly dawned on me the other day that all of my Internet Searching for Scenic fire issues had been in English. So using google translator I worked out the french is "incendie scenic" and door mirror is "electrique du retroviseur" if you take a look there are loads of issues about door mirror switches causing fires.

Now I'm fuming.......

Take a look at the link, highlight and copy the text then paste it into a translator such as Google's, the wording is cut-and-dried!!! Switch short circuit brought about by contamination apparently. They've known about this for a while!!!

Here's one of the links I found:-

Incendie localisé sur SCENIC - [Problemauto, le portail de l***8217;expertise automobile et des experts en automobile indépendants]

What do you make of it??

When they said "Heated Mirrors" ................
