You have not stated any reason why the dealer would be responsible. If it was a manufacturer's defect, the manufacturer may have some responsibility. In any event, I believe you still owe the dealer for the remainder of the purchase price of the car.

I suggest you go on line to fine out if the kind of car you have is prone to this problem. Of course, you need to know what caused the fire. If it was a manufacturer's defect, then you can hold the manufacturer liable. Want to know the law without going to law school? Protect yourself against ripoffs?
