LISTEN: Wendy's take on the Ford Kugas-on-fire drama
There are 44 Ford Kugas which are said to have caught alight. So far. That’s a lot of flames, one loss of life, and many hefty insurance claims. Some have been settled and some not - much trauma for the car owners and a public relations disaster for Ford South Africa. The siblings of Reshall Jimmy, who died in his Ford Kuga when it caught alight in the Wilderness area in December 2015, have documented those 44 Kuga fires, with first-hand accounts and photos, on the Facebook page they created in September in a bid to raise awareness of the Kugas on Fire issue.
